Meatless Monday Joins Slow Food at Leading International Event

September 24th, 2018


On Monday, September 24, Slow Food, the global grassroots organization, will highlight Meatless Monday with celebrated chefs at Terra Madre Salone del Gusto, one of the biggest international events devoted to food.

Slow Food was founded in 1989 to inspire individuals and communities to change the world through food that is good, clean and fair for all. The global Slow Food movement is creating dramatic change in more than 160 countries. Now, Slow Food and Meatless Monday have partnered to provide a weekly platform to highlight the delicious taste, diversity and rich cultural heritage of plant-based cuisine around the world.

At the Taste Workshop, Peggy Neu, president of Meatless Monday, will share the exciting story of the growth of the Meatless Monday Movement. She’ll also introduce two celebrated chefs who will showcase imaginative plant-based recipes.

Chef Drew Deckman, restaurateur and culinary consultant based in Baja, California, received a Michelin Star for his work and was acknowledged as a Rising-Star Chef when he was in Germany. He’ll thrill taste buds with his Grilled Bread and Raw porcini salad with Parmesano Reggiano.

Jennifer Jasinski, a James Beard Foundation award winner for Best Southwest Chef owns and runs several restaurants in Denver, Colorado. She’ll refresh palates with her Chilled Beans Vinaigrette, Yellow Watermelon and Jimmy Nardello Jam.
