Traditional Aceto Balsamico from Monticello, NM

Join Slow Food Santa Fe and Steve & Jane Darland to hear the story of the Darland's journey to create the most authentic balsamic vinegar in the U.S., right here in New Mexico (!) on a small organic farm in the village of Monticello, 160 miles south of Albuquerque. Described as "rare and wonderful” by Ruth Reichl, former editor of Gourmet and NY Times food writer, this Italian-style classic made with estate-grown, organic grapes, aged in rare wood casks from Italy would “rival anything from Modena” according to Brett Ottolenghi, proprietor of Artisanal Foods in Las Vegas NV.  In addition to hearing the Darland’s very Slow Food approach to producing outstanding balsamic vinegar, we will have the opportunity to taste and purchase – at cost – these unique products. 

The event will take place at the Santa Fe School of Cooking, 125 N Guadalupe St, Santa Fe. Tickets: $25 plus handling fee. Click here for tickets.
