Our first public meeting on Monday, March 10th, was incredibly successful! Thanks to everyone who helped us make it possible. Sean and Daniel made us some incredible oven fried potatoes and onion rings made from Aloun Farms produce. San also brought some ruby red grapefruit for us to enjoy from Krutistown. The meeting began with all of the officers telling about why they are a part of Slow Food and how they made a personal connection to it. Then we had special guest, Ed Kenney, Chef of Town Restaurant in Honolulu, talk to the group about his personal experience and dedication to the Slow Food movement. Announcements for upcoming events and dues were also made. Stay tuned to our next event! We are planning to have a meeting on April 14th at 12:30 pm. We'll keep you "post"ed!
