EVENT DETAILS
Join Slow Food Seacoast for Slow Sips at Moxy in Portsmouth.  Slow Sips events rotate between establishments that promote and support the Slow Food values of good clean fair and local food. 

In February we present Inspirations from Terra Madre, a sampling of foods from the Slow Food USA Ark of Taste program, Wednesday February 25, 5:30 – 7:30 at Moxy, 106 Penhallow Street, Portsmouth, NH. Tickets are $35 or $30 for Slow Food members.

Terra Madre is a gathering of world food communities that convenes bi-annually in Italy. Three delegates from the Seacoast - Spencer Montgomery, Amanda Parks and Kathy Gunst – will share stories of their experiences and how they were inspired to help save endangered foods. Chef Matt Louis and his talented kitchen crew will prepare tastings of local seafood, vegetables and beverages.

The focus of the evenings preparations will be on foods from Slow Food USA's Ark of Taste program and include seafood, Abenaki Flint Corn and a variety of vegetables.  The Ark of Taste process involved the nomination and evaluation of traditional foods (heirloom plants and heritage breeds of animals) and subsequent “boarding” onto the Ark. Ark foods are then promoted through the motto “Eat it to Save it”. By creating a market for these foods, farmers are encouraged to produce more and thus save endangered species. Presentations will focus on these ideas and investigate whether the Ark model will work as well for fisheries as it does for agricultural products.

Slow Food Seacoast is a local chapter of an international organization whose focus is on promoting good, clean and fair food for all. We like to grow cook and eat, and support or local farmers in the process. We invite everyone to join our delicious revolution!
