2013 Winter Warmer Slow Food Potlucks
Time to relax after the holiday madness with like-minded folks sharing food, fun and conviviality!
As usual, a few generous folks have stepped forward and agreed to open their homes to other Slow Food East Bay members for our quarterly potlucks. Locations, timing and themes are listed below with links to the appropriate signups on Brown Paper Tickets.
Pick whichever one appeals and reserve your place ASAP - they're quite limited at some of the spots.
As we mentioned before, we're planning to use this set of gatherings to raise the topic of investing in local food businesses - we're hoping to have people at each dinner conversant in the finances of the food biz, investing options such as Slow Money, and, hopefully, reps from People's Community Market
. Their amazing project in West Oakland is getting off the ground - we recommend youcheck out the details
, then plan to come on the 10th and learn more!
Though farmers markets are a little spare right now, there are still options like beautiful scarlet turnips, local meat and eggs and Satsumas and Cara Caras to die for - so dig deep into your creativity and put together a seasonally appropriate
dish to share with your fellow Slow Foodies.
Here's to Good Clean & Fair
food in the New Year!

A couple of notes:
- Although we are not requiring payment in advance, we are using your reservation of a spot as guarantee that you will attend. Some of our hosts have limited space, and so each and every attendee will be important in order to have a full and complete meal and no holes around the table. If you have to back out, please let us know immediately. The consideration is appreciated!
- Please do your best to respect the values of Slow Food when procuring and preparing your dish. Have your food reflect the three-pronged approach of Good, Clean and Fair. Your local producers and the environment will thank you!
- Lastly, there is no fee for these potlucks, although we always appreciate donations to our Slow Food Chapter, giving us the funds to continue our presence in the food community and our offerings of fun and educational events for our members. Contact Willow to find out how.
