Delegates Picks from Florida

Meet delegates Stefanie and Jeffrey Hamblen from Gainesville, Florida. They are proud owners of Hogtown HomeGrown, a seasonal food newsletter-website that embodies our philosophy of good, clean, and fair food for all. This is their schedule at Slow Food Nations. Tag along!


“I am starting my day with Steven Satterfield’s class since part of my business is to do market tours and cooking classes. I love to pick up new tips and recipes! At the same time, my husband is going to a coffee talk and tasting, and then we are meeting up to learn how to smoke and cure our own salmon. We left the afternoon free to explore all the displays and vendors. Our experience at Terra Madre’s Salone de Gusto has us prepared to taste, learn and buy!      
On Sunday, I am volunteering at the mushroom workshop, then we are taking the agritourism workshop together. Afterwards we are thrilled to be going to the Zero Waste Family Meal — it was something I suggested in the planning stages of SFN since we attended one in Torino at the end of Terra Madre in 2010!”
