Two Slow Food Event Reminders
Slow and Steady Wins the Race
Tonight (Tuesday Feb. 17) from 5:30 to 7:30, Chef Michael Wagner and Slow Foods Glades to Coast team up for A Slow Winter's Night at Lola's on Harrison, where they'll be hosting a mini mixology workshop (and yes, you get to drink the exhibits). Wagner and his team will be mixing locavore cocktails with fresh fruit and herbs from area farms, paired with delicious canapes (I've got my eye on the rock shrimp croquettes). Cost is $25, a portion of which goes to support Slow Food projects in education and outreach. Lola's is located at 2032 Harrison Street, Hollywood. Call them and tell them you're coming: 954-927-9851.
And, upcoming: the Miami Slow Foods chapter is planning a Farm to Table event Honoring Our Local Producers hosted by Creek 28 on Thursday, February 26. Tickets are $68 per person all inclusive for a lovely menu that includes a choice of local fish or braised rabbit with taglietelle as the main course (I can vouch, braised rabbit is delicious). See the full menu and purchase tickets here.
