Pause* with us for a Slow Lunch – Ekka Wednesday – 12 noon on 15th August

where we celebrate the pleasure and diversity that our locally grown foods offer us.


August 15th is Ekka Wednesday, a winter holiday in our glorious part of the world, but August 15th is also Ferragosto, a major public holiday in Italy, Slow Food’s birthplace, established to celebrate the good food of the harvest and to provide time for much needed rest at the end of a long period of labour in the fields

Italian chef Rino will draw on his knowledge of and passion for local produce to create a four course menu of taste sensations. (We have sampled some of these courses and they are delicious!).

More details about our guest speaker and the menu soon.
