Slow Food Kansas City Mission Statement

A Kansas City group dedicated to a new culinary trend explain the concept of "slow food" . . .

"Slow Food is an idea, a way of living and a way of eating. It is a global, grassroots movement with thousands of members around the world that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment.

Slow Food Kansas City, a local convivium, focuses on food, local growers and the food preparation practices within different cultures. Slow Food teaches us about choice and season — choosing food produced in season for the prime taste in the food you eat. Slow Food not only attempts to preserve authentic ingredients in food preparation, but is also dedicated to maintaining traditions which are sometimes centuries old. Part of this new interest in locally grown, seasonable fare is that the people of Kansas City want the option to choose local, sometimes organic foods."

Fun fact: This group often gathers at local restaurants to enjoy "slow food" while the rest of us with stuff to do only have time to grab quick service restaurant tripe in between work sessions.

These idiots don't even realize that countries that have 'slow food' aka long dinners have waitstaff that make a flat rate and don't depend on tips.

So you are just fucking over someone making 2.35 an hour (plus your 18 percent tip after you camp in a booth for 4 hours!).

Fuck you you fucking fartfaces. Sitting there smelling of methane and artisanal radishes. Ya'll gonna get cropdusted.

Kansas City always gets these 'new' ideas five years after they're popular everywhere else.
