A Slow Food Feast August 30

Here is your chance to have a great Farm-to-Table Feast at Chef Vincent Nattress' Bayview farm and help send him on his way to Slow Food Terra Madre in October.

Send Him To Terra Madre!

Slow Food Whidbey Island's Chair is going to Terra Madre 2014

Every other year, Slow Food international hosts the biggest food event in the world: Terra Madre.  This year our Chair, Vincent Nattress, was selected as one of the delegates for the US contingent.  Now he just needs to raise the money to get to Italy in October (Slow Food International is covering the rest).

So Vincent had the great idea of hosting a feast on his farm to raise the funds.  Won't you join 49 other lucky Slow Foodies, to dine in style, at the future site of The Orchard Kitchen and help send Vincent on his way?
