Slow Food Japan Leader to Sign Books at Avid Reader

Save the Date!

On October 2, 2012, longtime Slow Food Japan leader Nancy Singleton Hachisu will be at the Avid Reader in Davis, signing her stunning and heartwarming book, Japanese Farm Food. It tells the story of a California’s girls marriage to a Japanese farmer, the way of life on the farm, a mix of  traditional and contemporary, and is full of the simple, seasonal recipes she has developed over her years on the farm.

Nancy was in San Francisco several years ago, attending Slow Food Nation, and came to Davis on a ‘field trip’ that Slow Food Yolo Co-leaders Ann Evans and Georgeanne Brennan organized as part of Slow Food Nation. It would be lovely to give her a warm welcome back and help her celebrate her book, which is highly praised by Alice Waters and has a forward written by Patricia Wells.”
