Who We Are…

 

Slow Food is a grassroots organisation, founded in 1989, to prevent the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions, counteract the rise of the fast life and combat people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from and how our food choices affect the world around us.

Slow Food aims to change the world through food and celebrates the love of food cultures, rituals and traditions. It connects everyone through food that is ethically and locally-grown, produced, prepared and served.

Slow Food Auckland is an active, local group committed to events, activities, causes and collaborations that bring the Slow Food philosophy to life.

We work at a local level is to help people engage with the important issues affecting our planet and to promote the local growers, producers, ethical entrepreneurs and businesses within our communities who support good, clean and fair food.

 

Expect to have fun, meet new friends and enjoy great food.

Love and Pierogi

Love and Pierogi

Our Polish Pierogi workshop was so much more than a cooking class. It reminded us that food is love and food is memory – a way to connect to our heritage and to our own cultural identity.  There was no doubt it is all about family – our teacher Angelina, owner of Taste of Poland catering was there with her daughter and Regina from the Auckland Polish Association with her amazing Mama. While most of us were curious cooks and eaters, others had fond memories of their Babcia’s (grandmother’s) pierogi and wanted to learn how to make them.
