Slow Food Slow Food is an organization that originated in Italy and is focused on promoting foods that are local, clean (raised in a healthy way) and good. The meal’s center piece was Island Creek Oysters are raised a short drive South of Boston in Duxbury Bay. Over the last 15 years oyster farming has grown to be the largest industry in the town and the oysters there can cleanse the harbors waters every week. (Each can filter 30 gallons of water per day- or about a bathtub’s volume) Interestingly oysters also are unusual in that a farm raised oyster tastes essentially the same as a wild one raised in the same area.
