Canape: Goat's curd, olive and thyme biscotti sandwich
Becasse Restaurant's Producers Lunch Forum today was dedicated to all things slow - slow raised wagyu cattle, slow grown vegetables and slow seafood.
The lunch honoured Slow Food Founder Italian Carlo Petrini who was in Sydney for the Sydney Food Festival. The Guardian newspaper named Carlo one of the 50 people who could save the planet and Carlo is living up to those expectations. Encouraging people to take time to eat properly and care about how their food is grown is part of his mantra. Here in Australia Carlo weighed into the fight over the ban on raw milk cheese production saying if we could import Italian and French raw milk cheeses does this mean 'their bacteria is safer than Australia's?' Stupido! Here, here, Carlo!
