Welcome back and Welcome to Slow Food KCC!

Great turnout! Our membership drive and first meeting of the semester was a great success. We have 12 new members to add to our renewing membership which brings us to about 30 members and counting... a few more people were unable to attend but will be joining in the next couple of days. At today's meeting we discussed the possibilities for the upcoming semester, recapped the Big Island trip and had a butter taste off between newcomer Naked Cow Dairy, Oahu's only cow dairy, and Costco... as I'm sure you might have guessed, freshly churned, full fat, bright yellow local butter beat the competition by a mile..

Anna, Kevin and I shared a little about the Big Island Culinary Tour which was inspiring to say the least. Next post I will put up pics and stories from each of us about the amazing trip.

The membership meeting also gave us a chance to thank Saeed for his hard work over the summer; pretty much single-handedly running beef cooking demos for Hawaii Beef Industry Council on behalf of Slow Food KCC and all this with a brand new baby girl a.k.a the youngest and cutest Slow Food KCC member! Thanks again Saeed!

Look forward to a schedule of events soon and to lots of Slow Food doings this semester!

President, Slow Food KCC
