we are beginning to hear more and more in the Food and Wine
pleased to hear that all food was grown or raised in Nevada.
Many people believe that Nevada is a barren desert state where
nothing much grows. At this event most of those detractors were
proved wrong. Michelin award wining Chef Alex Stratta prepared some of these flavorful dishes that featured figs, eggs, garlic , shallots and even Nevada grass raised beef.
Giovani Moro, owner of Nora's Winebar was the emcee and host of the event. After
hearing him speak , it really made an impact on us here at Vino Las Vegas. It is very important that we pay attention on how all of our food is produced. Many Chefs here in Las Vegas and around the world have really taken Slow Food's mission to heart to create some delicious dishes that are not only healthy but sustainable as well.
Giovani and Alex Stratta both have a passion to use high quality traditional foods that are produced through partnerships with farmers, fishers and breeders that are sustainable in today's world . This is a movement that forces us to focus on sustenance and promotes the revival of eating and protecting vegetables, grains and animal breeds that are at risk of disappearing.
