Pot Luck Meeting/Movie and Chocolate

Join us at Main Street Gourmet in Orleans to catch a flick from their Food Awareness Film Series. This month they will be showing Chocolat, and James Canedy, owner of Main Street Gourmet, will be sharing his knowledge on making chocolate from “bean to bar”.

We also plan to meet 30 minutes prior to kick off time, to have a quick meeting. Recap last year, talk about our finances, and share plans for 2010. Would be great to get a core group together to help with our movement. So if you have thought about jumping in and lending a hand, have an idea that you would like to spring to life, or are just curious about what Slow Food is all about, come on down and lets take some action together.

Join us either for the meeting or the movie or both!

December 19th – Film Series – Julie and Julia

by Slow Food Cape Cod on December 13, 2009

Main Street Gourmet in Orleans,  has been showing a series of food films. Lets meet and  share a snack, sip on goodies before the film, as well as after, with discussion about the film and other newsworthy food issues.   Since I somehow did not make it to the theaters to watch my icon Julia Child, I thought this would be a fun way to take in the film and get together with other Slow Food members. Space is limited, BYOC (bring your own chair), and any goodies you would like to enjoy for the movie. There is no charge for this event – making it perfect for the holiday season…

Main Street Gourmet is an elegant and resourceful retail kitchen shop for the aspiring and weathered gourmet chefs alike. Slow Food Cape Cod has a decorated Gingerbread House on display, see if you can figure out which one it is, and cast your vote.

Movie: Amy Adams stars in this truth-inspired tale as Julie Powell, a disenchanted government secretary who decides to enliven her uneventful life by cooking all 524 recipes outlined in Julia Child’s culinary classic Mastering the Art of French Cooking.  Based on Powells’s book Julie & Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen, director Nora Ephron’s heartwarming dramedy also stars Meryl Streep as legendary chef Child.

Date: Saturday, December 19th
Time: 7:00 PM
Cost: No Charge
What to Bring: A beanbag/folding chair, snack, beverage
Location: Main Street Gourmet, 42 Main Street, Orleans
