The Slow Food Movement has Arrived in San Antonio

As we watched the nearly 200 guests mill about at the Slow Food South Texas Harvest Gala at the Botanical Gardens last Saturday, it became clear that the slow food movement has caught on here in San Antonio.  In a city where obesity is prevalent and a chain restaurant can be found on almost every corner, it was refreshing to see so many people brought together by the idea that good, clean and fair food should be accessible to everyone.
