Joel Salatin, to Speak at APCC

by Slow Food Cape Cod on September 15, 2009

Joel Salatin,  America’s most influential farmer, is the guest speaker at the Association to Preserve Cape Cod’s 2009 Annual meeting! Tickets are free for members of the Association and $20.00 for non-members. Joel Salatin came on my radar when I read Michael Pollan’s book “Omnivore’s Dilemma”. In the book, Michael Pollan wanted to purchase meat products from the farm and have them shipped. He soon found out the only way to get  local food was to be in the area, since Joel did not ship product. This ended up with a trip to the farm, and a very engaging introduction to Joel’s farming methods. The book opened my eyes to farming and how important it is to know where/how our food is produced. I am SO, SO excited to hear him speak, he is the author of several books, the latest being “Everything I Want to Do is Illegal“.

Slow Food Dinner – Feb 19th / CSA Discussion

by Slow Food Cape Cod on February 4, 2009


Great News – Chef Jerome Watkins has offered to host yet another Slow Food Dinner for us at Willy’s in Eastham, this time it is a rabbit tasting menu. His focus is to use local, organic foods and one taste says it all – “local foods rule”. Last month was such a success we had about 50 people gather at Willy’s and enjoyed a meal together. We are also going to have a discussion on CSA – community supported agriculture. We have invited Donna from Cedar Spring Herb Farm to educate us on her CSA-W (includes wellness). This is the  second year Cedar Spring Farm will be offering a CSA-W, so it will be great to support the effort.  See the menu below for the scrumptious details of our next culinary adventure.  Many thanks to Tim Friary from Cape Cod Organics, Julie WInslow from Cape Coastal Farm, E&T Farm and Cottage Street Bakery for their support and contributions to our dinners. Profits will be donated to a local farm to assist in getting them past the snow season. Email to me if you plan to attend, vegetarian option is available. We have been setting up a long table so we can all sit together, so come on your own, or bring a friend/significant other. Information will be on hand for some of the Cape’s CSA’s – a great way for coproducers (the consumer) to create a direct relationship with a farm and recieve a weekly basket of produce – a win/win for all.
