MOSHI MOSHI IN MAY
This is a special time of year for me. Regular readers will already know how inspiring I have found the Slow Food movement – and if you'd like to find out more for yourself, please come along to some of the fabulous events at Slow Food UK: 'A week devoted to Good, Clean and Fair Food'. I'd like to draw your attention in particular to an evening of Fishing and Foraging.
Slow Food UK Week 2013: June 1-9
A message from Slow Food UK
This June, Slow Food groups, chefs and businesses – all of whom share our ethos – will be organising some wonderful public events around the country.
But we are also encouraging people to host their own celebrations at home, by cooking with leftovers, seasonal or Forgotten Foods. Slow Food promotes the enjoyment and the pleasure of food while having a responsible attitude towards it. We believe the best way of celebrating this is by sharing a slow meal with your friends and family.
This year, the focus will be on six new Forgotten Foods at the Slow Food UK Ark of Taste. We want Slow Food Week to be a forum for reinforcing the movement's work with local artisan producers and suppliers to preserve special British flavours.
Apart from attending events or organizing their own, people can also get involved through our online auction (http://www.slowfood.org.uk/slow-food-week-online-auction/). Here they can bid for wonderful products and experiences that were kindly donated by our chefs and supporters. All proceeds will support the Slow Food cause.
QR Sushi Codes get the Thumbs Up in the Metro
We were delighted to see the technology pages in the Metro championing the notion that diners should be entitled to know where their food comes from. Following on from the horsemeat debacle, the momentum is gathering for more transparency: showing you clearly where your food comes from is at the heart of what we do at Moshi Moshi.

Slow Fish in Italy
This month I will be celebrating slow, and travelling by train to Slow Fish in Genoa with Chris Bean, our wonderful fisherman from Cornwall. It will be a real treat to spend time with him at such an inspiring gathering – and the perfect way of celebrating the 10 years that we've been working together, after having first met at a Slow Food event.

That's all from me, but I'd love to hear from you if you have any comments on the menu or a recent experience.
