Come Labor Day weekend, 50,000 people are expected to descend on San Francisco to taste farm-fresh produce, sample biodynamic wines, learn how bread is made, and get back to a time when people made their meals from scratch.

The organizers of Slow Food Nation, billed as the “largest celebration of American food in history,” hope to change the world socially, ecologically and politically through people’s stomachs.

“The goal is to galvanize the sustainable food movement and bring it to the masses,” says spokeswoman Naomi Starkman. “Food is love. So how do we make it not just a privilege, but a right?”

Slow Food Nation, which kicks off on Friday, is the first-ever event of its kind in the United States. During the following four days there are plans for local hikes, regional tours, lectures, workshops, films, music, cooking demonstrations and, of course, lots and lots of food.

Slow Food preview celebrations and dinners have already begun cropping up around the Bay Area. Many of the events have already sold out, but there is still plenty to do.
