Slow Food newsflash

I hope Anthony Creswell of Ummera realizes what a procrastinator I am. I don't mean to never announce things in time. I'm just throwing this in as it came in his e-mail. The details are legible, if not beautiful.

Anyway, if you're stuck for ideas tomorrow, slip on your wetsuit and head along to this:
