Sac Bee’s Debbie Arrington writes about a sit-down dinner, “the first of its kind in California, — affectionately nicknamed “Fork It!” by organizers” that “focuses on solving hunger issues by bringing people from very different backgrounds together for a special meal.”

The Slow Food Sacramento Book Club is a book club for readers who enjoy food-related literature, both non-fiction and fiction. The club meets at 6:30 pm on the second Thursday of every other month at one of our member’s homes. Everyone who attends brings an appetizer to share, and we enjoy an evening of lively literary discussion. At the close of each meeting we choose our next book based on recommendations from our members. New members are always welcome!

If you are interested in participating or if you would like more information, please contact Kathleen Albiani at

October meeting: October 16th at 6:30 pm

Day of Honey: A Memoir of Food, Love, and War by Annia Ciezadlo

“In the fall of 2003, as Iraq descended into civil war, Annia Ciezadlo spent her honeymoon in Baghdad. For the next six years, she lived in Baghdad and Beirut, where she dodged bullets during sectarian street battles, chronicled the Arab world’s first peaceful revolution, and watched Hezbollah commandos invade her Beirut neighborhood. Throughout all of it, she broke bread with Sunnis and Shiites, warlords and refugees, matriarchs and mullahs. Day of Honey is her story of the hunger for food and friendship during wartime—a communion that feeds the soul as much as the body.”
