Peggy Markel, entrepreneur, gastronome and world traveler, has designed and directed culinary tours since 1991. A long-time member of Slow Food and a founding member of Slow Food USA, her programs immerse fellow culinary adventurers into the very soul of a regional cuisine, from the field to the table.
Called “a cooking school pioneer” by Food and Wine magazine (Sept., 2007), Peggy was one of the first to bring Americans to Italy in search of culture and cuisine. She now operates culinary tours to Tuscany, Sicily, Elba, Amalfi and Morocco, bringing people together to learn about local cuisine and much more. The programs are about not just the food, but the people, as travelers meet the farmers growing the local food they prepare, as well as the artisans, bakers and winemakers who collectively make up the culinary soul of each country.
Join Slow Food Nashville, Margot Café and Bar and Marché Artisan Foods on Monday, March 3rd in hosting Peggy Markel for an evening of SlowTravel. The evening’s theme is the cuisine of Tuscany, Sicily and Morocco. Taste the local specialties as prepared by the staff of Marché while enjoying a slide presentation and short introduction by Peggy on the various itineraries of her culinary tours. Also, learn about the Slow Food movement and how to get involved here in Nashville. Become a member, sign up for a trip with Peggy, or just eat and enjoy in the spirit of conviviality.
