A college friend of mine, Kurt Friese, will appear tonight at Lucias Restaurant in Uptown Minneapolis to sign copies of his book, A Cook’s Journey: Slow Food in the Heartland.
The slow food movement began in Italy; in the states it is big on the coasts but has yet to become really popular in the Midwest, (aside from Madison, Wisconsin, for some reason). Slow food (as opposed to fast food) is part of the overall trend toward healthier, more organic, and locally-grown food.
Kurt will give a reading from his book and sign copies beginning at 5 p.m.
Lucias is located at 1432 on W. 32st Street, just off Hennepin. Map & Directions.
