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.
Marlborough Slow Food is proud to announce our monthly October Food Activity and invite all to join us in celebrating the humble yet very tasty Globe Artichoke. Available in season for about three months of the year this Cooking demo and tasting will certainly inspire you to use the Globe Artichoke more !
Tim Newsham and Kerry Raeburn will host this feast of Artichokes at 72 Ferry Road, Spring Creek (last driveway on the right before the Ferry Bridge). Learn how to prepare and unlock the Globe Artichokes secrets the easy way. Artichokes are highly regarded in Italy, France, North Afica and California and yet are more likely to be put in floral displays than eaten in NZ. Local Chefs Piero Rocco and Chris Fortune will educate and tempt you to use the Globe Artichoke in ways that will make you come back for seconds and thirds.
Slow food members are free and $10 for all other participants. RSVP by 13 th October to
