The local chapter of Slow Food is teaming up with a bike organization to visit several ethnic restaurants and ice cream parlors on a 20 mile bike ride Sunday Sept. 12th...sounds like an excellent way to sample some rose petal ice cream at the new Glendale Mashti Malone's and burn calories at the same time. One caveat: temperature forecast for Sunday is 80 degrees. I think I'll join the organization anyway, in hopes a less strenuous outing comes up.
Great Chowhound exchange about Slow Food:
"Slow food...does that mean Fred 62?"
"No, they said slow food, not totally inert food."
