Slow Food Social
We are holding a "Bring Your Own" social evening on Saturday 19 October 2013 at 8pm in Ballybrack. Please bring a dish to contribute to the buffet and also please bring your own wine/beer/juice.
As with all Slow Food events, this is open to everyone and non-members are especially welcome. There is no charge for this event.
Last week saw the launch of an award winning novel by Garden Convivium Slow Food member Ian Flitcroft
GET INVOLVED IN AN EVENT
€5 Challenge - We'd like to be more inclusive in our events and expand the participation in events throughout the area as the majority of our events are in the Glenageary/Killiney/Dalkey areas. So borrowing an idea from Slow Food USA and also from West Cork Convivium we've devised the €5 Challenge. This event will be held at various locations hopefully one each month. The event will be a dinner party/informal supper club/garden party/summer barbecue/mid-week lunch - the host decides, the "Challenge" is as follows:
- The host's maximum spend on the event does not exceed €5 per head.
- Guests are asked to bring their own wine/beer/soft drinks etc.
- The food served has to be in the main locally sourced, seasonal and/or wild and adhering to the ethos of Slow Food.
- Guests will pay a minimum of €5, but will hopefully donate more to reflect the diner's appreciation of the food served, €5 will be given to the host and additional donations will go towards raising much needed funds for the Convivium to enable it to organise other subsidised events throughout the year.
to arrange to host the next €5 Challenge.
