Please join us for a season’s bounty dinner, to kick off 2009, for Slow Food Cape Cod.  It is a great way to start our year by sharing local foods together. Proceeds from our dinner will go to Slow Food Cape Cod, to support our efforts. Chef Jerome Watkins, will be leading the helm, and has created a scrumptious menu. Cape Cod Organic Farm will be providing the brussels sprouts, turnip greens and sweet potatoes. Orleans Wine and Spirit are offering suggestions for pairing wines to compliment each course. Local oysters from Wellfleet will be kicking us off, and a cheese tasting will be included. Willy’s World Wellness & Conference Center, in Eastham, is donating their space to gather our troops. The focus of the meal is Venison, which is healthy, local and prepared by Chef Jerome sure to please. We are also offering a vegetarian option (for folks like me……who carry the spirit of Tony Bourdain, food as adventure,  but just draw a much finer line). Let us know in advance if you opt for vegetarian. Sign up is a simple email back, or at Willy’s we have a list going.
