Bottled Water and Slow Food Nation

Hosted by


Speaking of plastics, what about bottled water? Mark Peel, chef and owner of Campanile, makes the case for bottled water in restaurants. He's far more concerned with the beverage than the beverage container--for example, the amount of highly caffeinated energy drinks that adolescents like.

Another of Mark Peel's passions is Slow Food Nation, an organization that works to change the way Americans produce, cook and eat food by combining pleasure with responsibility, into activism. On Sunday, September 23, Campanile joins Alice Waters of Chez Panisse in hosting a benefit dinner/fundraiser for Slow Food Nation. For reservations, contact Caroline Allain at 323-938-1447 or email
