Tonight: Slow Food Phoenix Launches Tuesday Tasting

Those Slow Food folks sure are busy, cooking up all kinds of "eco-gastronomic" community events to raise awareness of sustainability and supporting local producers. 

And you know what? There's always some kind of delicious eats in the plan. Gotta love their priorities. (At left, they're feasting at Atlas Bistro.)
