Slow Food O'ahu will hold its Ark of Taste (AOT) Fundraiser at Ed Kenney's Mud Hen Water Restaurant this month. Funds raised will be used to send our Oahu delegation to Turin, Italy this September for the international Terra Madre event. Over the years, we have supported a number of Hawaii farmers, fishers and chefs including Waiahole and Maunawili poi producers, Ma'o organic farmers, managers from Pae Pae o Heeia, a Hanapepe traditional salt maker and other agents of Slow Food culture in our islands. We will feature a variety of Ark of Taste foods, including Manalauloa Kalo, Poi, Ko sugarcane juice and rum made from it, Hanapepe salt, Hawaiian 'Ulu, Kiawe & Lehua honeys, Polynesian mai'a (banana), Kona Coffee.
