Our events and activities
Bringing the Slow Food philosophy to life locally.
Events and activities provide opportunities for learning about food and learning new skills – they include practical workshops and demonstrations, tastings, knowledge exchange, garden visits and visiting producers. They bring people together to share the passion that binds the entire Slow Food network. Expect to have fun.
Here are some of the most popular things we have done – Slow Cheese Making, Forage to Feast Local Lunch, Celebrate The Olive Harvest, Menu for Change at Parnell Farmers Market, Field to Fork – Life on a Waitakere Smallholding and Alofa Kia Ika- a Pacific Feast.
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.
