Kitchen Cabinet

Local Advisory Board

The Denver community has an enormous amount of passion, talent and knowledge. One of the reasons that Denver was selected as our host city was for its collaborative spirit and dynamic food community. The Slow Food Nations Kitchen Cabinet, Local Advisory Board brings local leaders together to help shape the partners, programming and events of Slow Food Nations. They are ambassadors for the festival, for Denver, and for Slow Food. Many thanks to this talented group for their dedication and enthusiasm.
