Fifteen Louisiana residents made the trip to Italy to present their workshop “Louisiana is Washing Away”, during which they shared the challenges and joy of living in the unique and fragile region that is Coastal Louisiana. They also learned how Good, Clean and Fair Food is practiced around the world.
Chef Ryan Hughes of Purloo will serve an apertivo (Italian Happy Hour) during the program and offer an Ark of Taste dinner for anyone that would like to dine afterwards. Terra Madre Day | Dec 10 | Southern Beverage Museum | 1504 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd. | New Orleans | 6-8 pm
Slow Food NOLA is now operating a community garden at the corner of St. Philip and N. Dupre in Faubourg St. John.
The garden grows seasonal foods and flowers for sale at local markets. Proceeds from the sale of produce will, in part, go towards Slow Food NOLA’s effort to adopt a Slow Food Garden in Africa. Please contact Slow Food NOLA chair Gary Granata if you are interested in volunteering in the garden.
