From their website.. “Slow Food is a no-profit, eco-gastronomic member-supported organization that was founded in 1989 to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world. To do that, Slow Food brings together pleasure and responsibility, and makes them inseparable. Today, we have over 100,000 members in 132 countries. ”
Giapo gelato joined Slow food Auckland because we really share the same vision, we preach the same thing.. counteracting the fast food and ……….the fast life. The goal is to offer an option to bad food in New Zealand. You know our mantra..: ”Food is meant to be good for you……..”
Because we love Slow Food and we are so similar in the purpose we want to help them get their voice out there more and more.
This coming 4th of August, in occasion of Rick Stein event, Food Odissey, we are going to host a little gathering to promote the slow food movement in New Zealand…
We will be making a special St Clair Sauvignon Blanc Sorbet … and there will be Nibbles including fresh scallops & fish that will be provided by Cathedral Cove Macadamias (our supplier for organic macadamia nuts).. prior to Rick Stein show.
It is just $15 dollars for the evening and if you would like to become a member it only costs $105 dollars to be part of it.
Thank you very much Gianpaolo!
