Pacific Merchants is pleased to support The Village Voice’s annual “Choice Eats” event, which benefits the Slow Food Movement.
About Choice Eats
Founded in 2008, Choice Eats is an annual event hosted by The Village Voice, which benefits a different charity or organization annually. This year, Choice Eats will benefit Slow Food NYC, a local chapter of Slow Food. All restaurants and chefs invited to participate in this event have been reviewed by Robert Sietsema, The Village Voice’s resident food critic and occasional Gourmet Magazine contributor. Event guests will not only be able to sample some of the most delicious foods from the five boroughs, but will also be treated to complimentary wine, beer, and alcohol pairings from sponsors such as Michael Collins Irish Whiskey, Abita Beer, Stella Artois, Jagermeister, Prairie Organic Vodka, and Flying Dog Brewery, just to name a few.

About Slow Food
The Slow Food movement was developed in 1989 “out of the need to counter the rise of fast food and fast life,” as well as the apathy that people now have for what they eat and where it comes from. Slow Food now boasts over 100,000 members and 1,300 “convivia” (local chapters) worldwide who are dedicated to producing, as well as sustaining, quality foods. Slow Food can be found in 153 countries throughout the world, and even if you don’t have the time or means to become a full-fledged member, you can help support the movement by becoming a responsible consumer, (otherwise known as a “co-producer“).
Pacific Merchants Gets Involved
We here at Pacific Merchants are extremely excited to become involved with Choice Eats and their support of the Slow Food movement. Whether it’s our Mason Cash line of mixing bowls, pudding basins and baking dishes, or our Acaciaware serving pieces, we feel that our products encourage people to slow down and enjoy their meals with friends and loved ones. We could think of no better partnership than to support Slow Food, as they espouse our belief in home-cooked meals made with the most sustainable foods available. It doesn’t hurt that Choice Eats will also feature some of the best of the best in New York food, as we all love some incredible epicurean exploits!
