There has been a lot of eating and conviviality for Slow Food Auckland in 2019 – all in the name of supporting Good, Clean and Fair Food for All.
- GOOD: quality, flavorsome and healthy food
- CLEAN: production that does not harm the environment
- FAIR: accessible prices for consumers and fair conditions and pay for producers

Hands on Slow Gnocchi class at Pasta and Cuore on June 14th – everyone had a great dinner that night! We learned how to make both ricotta and potato gnocchi and many different ways to roll them.
A delicious Sunday lunch at Gusto at the Grand – authentic Italian food that caters for vegetarians so well – and it was a very long lunch even though we were eating from the great value $55 Express Menu
Beautiful event at Giapo, where we had a precious insight of what goes on behind the scenes in one of New Zealand’s most creative kitchens! We ate some amazing gelato!!
Ferment Festival was fun and felt like family – a great group of small and not so small producers and artisans providing amazing food and drink. Slow Food Auckland was supported by some inspiring AUT Masters in Gastronomy students – thank you!
Slow Chestnuts gave us hands on harvesting experience and a very convivial lunch at Aotea Organics. Thank you to our Italian friends who gave us great insight into the role of chestnuts in Italian food and how to cook with them.
A Waitangi Day Celebration Picnic kicked off our Slow Food Auckland 2019 events and activities. We joined the celebrations at Hoani Waititi Marae in Glen Eden.This was important, as it placed us at the “heart” of Waitangi Day and near the home of the Oratia Beauty Apple – a member of the Slow Food Ark of Taste.
More to come…
