Holiday Dinner Potluck 2017

December 7, 2017 • 6:00 pm9:00 pm

Holiday Potluck

For leaders, members and friends
6 – 9pm

Join us in taking time to slow down and reflect on the season and progress of Slow Food.

From the Slow Food Nation gathering in Denver, to our own local Grow a Row success this summer with the Petaluma Gold Rush bean, –it has been an exciting year for gardeners and foodies everywhere.

On Thursday, December 7th, Slow Food South Bay is hosting a Holiday Potluck for members, fans and guests to honor these efforts and look forward to the coming year’s possibilities.

Although this is an ‘informal’ event, holiday attire and general good cheer is encouraged. Bring a friend and your special holiday dish, dessert, or treats from your garden to share.

RSVP below to get potluck details and directions.

Arrive early! –for those who would love to create their meal with others, or those would like to assist (or receive assistance) in the kitchen, our hostess, Joni Sare, has graciously offered her spacious, ‘teaching’ kitchen as well as her warm home for the evening. If you would like to practice your chef skills alongside Joni (last year’s Silicon Valley Personal Chef of the Year) and others, then come early!

Later in the evening there will be short presentations:
1) about Terra Madre biannual food festival in Italy by our local South Bay representatives
2) Luc and Martin, from Foot of the Bed Cellars, will pour and share their story of a new way with wine.
3) Hillie will give an update on her “Grow a Row” project.
4) SFSB leaders will give a short preview of the year to come.
5) Anyone is welcome to introduce themselves to the group, their “Slow” connection.

Come meet some new friends and kindred spirits in the light of the season!
