Slow Food: Saving our Food Heritage
“Fast,” “Convenient,” “Save time,” all have become the mantras of modern life. “Time is money,” has become the foundation of how we live our lives today, both here in the US and Italy. Many of the time-honored traditions of Italian regional cuisine are being lost and replaced by more time efficient and less expensive methods.
The “Slow Food” Movement was created to prevent the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions, counteract the rise of fast life, and combat people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat. It goes without saying that Italy has a rich food culture and is an extraordinary expression of local traditions.
We like to think that what we have done here at the Food Club is based on the “Slow Food” tradition. This week’s menu is an example of regional dishes from North, Central and Southern Italy.

EVERY SUNDAY: Fried Chicken Meal
At our little Trattoria in Tuscany we were famous for our "Pollo Fritto," fried chicken. The Florentines would drive out to visit us in the country on the weekends and we would always sell out. I am proud to say that my American friends and customers (even those from the South!) seem to have also fallen in love with my recipe so I am starting a new tradition. On Sundays I will be frying up my recipe -- this time for the Washingtonians.
And now we have perfected a Gluten-Free version that is equally delicious and have created an entire menu that is gluten-free to accompany.
EVERY SUNDAY: Prime Rib Sunday Supper
Our Sunday night Prime Rib Supper is designed to deliver good, solid comfort food to nurture both the flesh and the spirit. We slow-roast our herb-crusted prime rib for hours, and serve it sliced thick with a rich beef jus reduction and crispy steak fries, fresh salad, rosemary focaccia and our Tuscan tiramisu. We are also offering three tiers of wine that go beautifully with supper. Enjoy!
