Terra Madre Day Pot Luck – Korero and Kai 2023

Terra Madre Day Pot Luck – Korero and Kai 2023

Slow Food Tamaki Makaurau kicked off the holiday season by celebrating Terra Madre Day in collaboration with Pacific Food Lab Aotearoa and AUT’s Master of Gastronomy students. Pacific Food Lab is a non-profit dedicated to bolstering resilient and sustainable food systems in Aotearoa and the Pacific. We have worked in conjunction with AUT to support community initiatives and education revolving around growing, cooking, and eating local food. It was an afternoon of conviviality and commensality, gathering around food with friends over an alfresco potluck accented by Snail of Approval food.

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.
