This dish that @millerunionchef Steven Satterfield made for Terra Madre Day looks perfect right about now. He took it to the @slowfoodatlanta chapter annual gathering and potluck at @5seasonswestside. Lucky Atlanta chapter! Here's what he had to say about his dish and Terra Madre Day: . Today is Terra Madre Day a celebration of the biannual gathering of @slowfood_international in Italy. Here in the states, all across the country, @slowfoodusahas been encouraging folks to make a dish using @camelliabeans for@MeatlessMonday to create #FoodForChange, a movement that supports agricultural products grown and produced in climate-friendly ways. My plant-based dish is Southern style hoppin’ john made with @camelliabeans field peas.
A cheers! To all the great gatherings that were had yesterday, the wonderful #foodforchange you all ate, and reaching 30k followers on IG today! (Also to this cool carrot cocktail at Slow Food Nations 2018). We are so grateful for you, our Slow Food community, and for all the ways in which you support a Slow Food world! . #slowfood #slowtheforkdown #goodcleanfair #cocktail #slowfoodnations #cheers
So many creative #meatlessmonday recipes with @camelliabeans are coming our way! For example... Christine Ciancetta made these Lentil Dosa Pancakes using a recipe taught to/shared with her by Jayachitra Chandrasekaran, both members of the Slow Food Greater Olympia chapter in Washington state. From Christine: I am so grateful to my friend, Jaya, for teaching me how to make these! Jaya is from Tamil Nadu in the Southern part of India. She and I live in Olympia, Washington. These protein-packed homestyle pancakes are made from a batter of soaked and blended dried beans and rice. They worked out great with Camellia lentils! . We want one! You can get the recipe on our blog, along with several other fantastic, meatless, bean recipes! 📷Jenni Crain . #Foodforchange #GatherRound
Meanwhile, our partners over at @camelliabeans cooked up a hearty lunch for their office potluck in celebration of Terra Madre Day! It’s #MeatlessMonday, so Josh made vegetarian red beans & rice for the team, which was clearly and thoroughly enjoyed... swipe left to see them all! . #foodforchange #gatherround
Installment #1 of our day of Terra Madre Day #Foodforchange inspiration! Olga Berman in Washington DC, or @MangoTomato here, whipped up what looks like an extremely satisfying meal. Here's what she had to say about it: . Breakfast or lunch? This pinto bean bar I created for @slowfoodusa in celebration of #TerraMadre2018 is perfect for both, but especially fun for @Meatlessmonday! Good, clean, fair food doesn't have to be boring. You can change the environment through your food choices! (baked plantains, hardboiled egg, arugula, lime, radishes, cilantro, cotija cheese). . We agree completely! Thanks, Olga. How do you eat pinto beans, friends? 📷 PC: @MangoTomato
TERRA MADRE DAY is a major Slow Food event, celebrating local food on a global scale. Every December, on the 10th thousands of people around the world organize parties and gatherings to celebrate good, clean and fair food: good quality and flavorsome; clean for our bodies, for animals and for the planet; fair for producers and consumers alike. Terra Madre Day brings together all who share the vision of a food system that supports local economies, that respects the environment, biodiversity, taste, and tradition. A better alternative is possible! . To protect our environment and to shine a light on the link between food and climate change, this year, Terra Madre Day is focused on Food for Change, Slow Food’s international fundraising campaign to highlight the role of food as a cause, victim, and potential solution to climate change. . Join us in celebrating however you like - with a meal, a toast, an outing, or snack. Support #FoodforChange. Enjoy your food. . #Votewithyourfork #GatherRound #MeatlessMonday #TerraMadreDay #SlowFood
