At Slow Food, we believe that good, clean, and fair food should be accessible to all. And we can help make that happen.
Each year, a few of our members combine efforts to make and serve dinner at St. Paul's Community Center This year, the date is March 31st and the menu is pasta, salad, bread, cookies and ice cream. Here's a message from Mary Weiss, event organizer:
March 31st is when we will make and serve supper at St. Paul's. If helping serve, please be there by 5:00.
This is what is needed:
Pasta dishes to serve 12 (4)*
Salads to serve 12 (3)
Cookies 3 dozen (2)
Ice cream 3 half gallons, different flavors (1-3)
* number of people needed to bring each food
Please let me know if you are able to cook and/or serve.

In 2014, like cooks all across the country, we loved Ottolenghi's Jerusalem and found it was the perfect source of recipes that were good (overwhelmingly delicious!), clean (lots of vegetables, local meat, and relatively few exotic or out of season ingredients), and fair (mostly purchased from the Phoenix Earth Food Co-Op).
Several cooks got together in a couple of kitchens to prepare the meal, and then we re-grouped, with some additional eaters, to enjoy an incredible feast which, since we did all the work ourselves, was emininently affordable.
On Saturday, March 28th, SFMV member/leader Anita Levin will be hosting Ottolenghi Dinner II.
We'll announce the menu soon. A few spots are left for eaters; call Anita at 419 475-0256 if you haven't already made your reservation.

Join us for a follow-up to our bitters tasting last November. Many people know how bitters can enhance their cocktails. Now find out what happens when we take them into the kitchen, adding that special touch to dressings, sauces, desserts and more.
We'll have someone from Toledo Spirits on hand to tell you about their varieties of specialty bitters. Slow Food members will offer a cooking demonstration (in a beautiful show kitchen!) of how versatile bitters can be. You'll be able to sample three simple yet elegant dishes and walk away with the inspiration to use bitters in your own home.
When: Tuesday February 10th at 5:30
$6 members, $10 non-members
