Today’s kitchens are commonly stocked with olive oil and vinegar for cooking and salad dressings, but did you know about the many types and flavors of these staples? Join your fellow Slow Food DC members at Olio Tasting Room in Old Town, Alexandria as we learn about many varieties and unique flavors of olive oils and balsamic vinegars from Olio proprietor Penny Willimann. In addition to learning new things, we’ll get plenty of samples and maybe even some additional treats from other local purveyors of delicious foods!
When & Where
Slow Food DC
The Slow Food DC (SFDC) chapter is a community that promotes and celebrates local, seasonal, and sustainable food sources; works to preserve the culinary traditions of the region’s ethnically and culturally diverse populations; and supports the right of all people to enjoy good, clean, fair food.
SFDC represents the national capitol area, including Washington, DC, Virginia and Maryland. Members come from a wide variety of professions and backgrounds. We organize dinners, tastings, tours, lectures, and community outreach events providing SFDC members an opportunity to explore the richness of our region’s culinary heritage in addition to the diverse array of food and drink from around the world represented in our foodshed. It is our goal to connect our eaters with the biodiverse and sustainable food producers, as well as increase public awareness of slow eating.
