On June 24 you are invited to the AGM of Slow FoodNS.

 

Spend a lovely summer’s day in the company of friends who share your enthusiasm for food that is good, clean and fair. This year we are meeting in the community of Indian Point on the shore of Mahone Bay in Lunenburg County between the towns of Chester and Mahone Bay.

 

10:30am – Meet and Greet

At 11am we shall hear what Slow Food has been up to in the past year and elect the directors for the coming year. There are a couple of vacancies if you are interested in helping organize our convivium and play a leadership role in SFNS. If you would like to receive the Statement of Directors responsibilities, please contact mail@slowfoodns.ca to receive one.

At 12noon we shall have a moderated discussion on the future direction of Slow Food in Nova Scotia. Your input is welcome.

 

At 1:00pm Chef Terry Vassallo of Lunenburg’s Trattoria della Nonna will head a team of South Shore chefs in the preparation of what promises to be a spectacular seafood lunch. The menu will be made up of a selection of fish and seafood from local waters. There will be many opportunities to see and learn how to prepare marine delicacies.

Cost for the lunch: $20 for Slow Food members, $25 for potential members. Use the day to renew or apply for membership. Cash sales for beverages.

Please bring your own plates and utensils.

 

After the lunch, a speaker from the Ecology Action Centre will make a presentation on Slow Fish and sustainability issues relating to food from the sea. There will be time to ask questions about some of the complex choices we have to make if we hope to continue harvesting the bounty of the oceans.
