Slow Food Randomness: The S'More Bike

The biggest surprise of our day at Slow Food Nation 2008 wasn't the panel discussion on Edible Education with Alice Waters et al., or the indulgent 4-hour taste crawl through the pavilion at Ft. Mason, or even the victory garden and local food producers set up in front of city hall . . . it was the guy on the S'More Bike. He wasn't part of the program. In fact his flaming bicycle was quickly shut down by park security, but not before a crowd helped themselves to some unexpected gourmet goodness. These weren't your ordinary s'mores either, the marshmallows were from Recchiuti, the graham crackers were from Kika's and the chocolate was from Scharffen Berger.
