Mom always said to "Eat your food slow"

“The trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit.”

“Those who are slow to know suppose that slowness is the essence of knowledge.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

September 16 and I find myself at Broadview Station about to board Cheese Boutique's sponsored shuttle bus to the Slow Food Picnic at the Brickworks. The sold out event was well received and definitely a movement that is working its way into the social consciousness.
Current Mayor and a past Toronto mayor were in attendance as well as our former Governor General that quickly led me to discern that this event has a lot to say to the community at large. People are hearing what Slow Food is about. Our environment and the way we consume food is a hot topic and appropriately a slow movement developed over years is gaining steam... ok well what about the food? Pics below, looking forward to next year.
