Slow Food Nations kicked off on July 13 with a Slow Food USA delegate reception at the Denver Performing Arts Complex, where Mayor Michael Hancock welcomed representatives from dozens of U.S. cities and Snooze founder Adam Schlegel, the unofficial mayor of Denver brunch, ushered in a night of hospitality and great food at the Big Eat, just outside in the Galleria. From there, the Slow Food movement flooded the city with a series of outdoor markets and festivals as well as numerous lectures, demonstrations, chef dinners and tastings. Award-winning chefs popped up at various lunches and dinners when they weren't speaking about sustainability, culinary traditions and American food culture.
