The monumental Slow Food Nation affair is finally here! Time may have felt like it slowed down since you first heard that the largest Slow Food event in America was coming to San Francisco for Labor Day weekend, but with all the events quickly selling out it’s time to pick up the pace and make plans. You can slow down again once you get there. Here are our picks for the best of show.

1. Mondays with Morrone
Award winning Bay Area chef George Morrone will add his seasonal influences to the Fish and Farm menu on Mondays for the rest of August and the entire month of September (with the exception of Labor Day, September 1). Each Monday, the menu will also feature one of Morrone’s famous soups from his cookbook, Simply Elegant Soup. Call 415-474-3474 to make a reservation.
