It tells the story of the Dervaes family, who run a small organic farm in Pasadena, California. davidshalleckThen come a whole series of presentations, panels and discussions led by faculty at Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis, plus five local chefs, Todd Jameson (president of Slow Food Indy) and David Shalleck (pictured, right), author of Mediterranean Summer and winner of the 2008 Cordon d’Or Culinary Academy Award.
