Slow Food is a non-profit, member-supported organisation encouraging people to take an interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and to think about how their food choices affect the rest of the world. Today there are over 80,000 members internationally.
6-8pm, Wednesday 11 August BEC Luxury Lodge, 81 Cob Cottage Rd Italy is the birthplace of the international Slow Food Movement. For Slow Food Marlborough's August event, Sarah and Dave Anderson from BEC Luxury Lodge will host Simon Kelly from Lubrication Wines for an evening of Italian food and wine delights. Simon will take guests through a formal but fun tasting of 6 special Italian wines - 1 white and 5 reds. After the tasting, mingle and enjoy Italian-styled nibbles in the wonderful setting overlooking Blenheim and Cloudy Bay. Limited to 24 guests - Slow Food financial members will receive priority for bookings. $15 for members, $25 for non-members - to cover wine costs. Some bottles retail for up to $80, so this is a great opportunity to taste some special wines (available at favourable prices on the night) and great value too.
