Are you looking to get more involved in Slow Food? With Family Dinner Night and Cafe over for this week, we have some very exciting events coming up.
But first off, we’d like to thank everyone who came out this week and last to enjoy some good, clean and fair food. Slow Food UW has grown tremendously over the past few years and we couldn’t succeed without the help of our interns, volunteers and of course, our foodies.
Now to get down to business: On Friday September 20th, we will be hosting ‘Recipes for Change’, a dinner a documentary at Redamtè. This week’s dinner will feature a great documentary about social entrepreneurship called ‘Who Cares?’
While the screening is free, the cost of dinner will be $7. The menu includes:
Apple, radish, almond side salad
Corn relish and turkey pastries
Creamy roasted garlic tomato and zucchini soup
Also happening this weekend is the REAP Food for Thought Festival on Saturday September 21st. The event will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Martin Luther King Junior Blvd off the capitol square. The Food for Thought Festival is held alongside the Dane County Farmer’s Market and provides an opportunity to learn about our local food system.
A list of events can be found on the Reap website. We’ll be there, so be sure to stop by!
Our leadership team will be attending a retreat on Sunday at the Farley Center for Peace, Justice, and Sustainability in Verona. After some Slow Food bonding time, we’ll return to get cooking for an awesome Family Dinner Night featuring our own Andy Jack. The menu and sign-up link are posted, so we hope to see you there!
