11:30 am – 3 pm
15203 Sunset Road
Bow, Washington
$5 per person (covers the cost of facilities and staff to tour the farm)

Friends from Slow Food Seattle told Rhonda Gothberg they would like to come up to the Skagit Valley and visit her farm and cheesemaking facility. She agreed and said let’s make it a party, and invited the Slow Food Skagit River Salish Sea community, too, for a potluck!

Situated in pastoral Bow, her place is the perfect spot for a summer picnic. Bring a favorite locally sourced dish to share, as well as a beverage (beer and wine are okay), your own plate and flatware, and a lawn chair or two, if convenient. We will tour the facility, chat with each other about our beautiful area and our shared Slow Food values, then share a meal.

Consider checking out some of the local food spots afterwards with a self-guided tour of Slough Food, the Breadfarm, and Taylor Shellfish (Samish, in Bow).

Please RSVP to robin@cravefood.com or via the Facebook event! Limited to the first 50 people.

Photo: Seattle WeeklyJoin Slow Food Seattle in supporting the great advocacy work of Save Bristol Bay on Tuesday, July 24th at Local 360 with SFS board member and Top Chef alum, Chef Robin Leventhal to cook up awareness and support with their Eat It to Save It Bristol Bay Salmon Dinner. Joining the ranks of more than 50 restaurants nationwide, the event promises to shine a light on a proposed Pebble mine at Bristol Bay, Alaska that threatens to change the landscape of our ecosystem and the very survival of the northwest’s most beloved fish – the sockeye salmon.

The Eat It to Save It Bristol Bay Salmon Dinner will feature a 3-course menu for $35, with salmon-safe wine pairings for an additional $15, in the main dining room from 3pm to 10pm. There will also be a special opportunity to enjoy a 6-course menu prepared by Chef Leventhal in Local 360’s private dining room at 7pm. Offered at $85 per guest, this exquisite meal will feature wine pairings by Novelty Hill • Januik, a salmon-safe winery. A portion of all proceeds for the evening will go to Save Bristol Bay.

Reservations can be made at reservations@local360.org or by calling 206.441.9360 – don’t delay as this event will sell out.
