Slow Food Seattle Summer Picnic, Salmon Celebration, and Annual Meeting on July 31st

663364121_72920a0c46_bFor the past two years, Slow Food Seattle has come together for an excellent time at our summer picnic at Ravenna Park.

We had a honey tasting in 2014 and an artisanal sausage selection in 2015, and of course, amazing potlucks each year (Slow Food people continue to set a high bar for potlucks).

ark-prod-fish-marbled_chinook_salmon-02We’re returning to Ravenna Park for our 2016 summer picnic. Our special entree will be some delicious salmon. Our plan is to feature Slow Food Ark of Taste entry Marbled Chinook Salmon. (As with all seasonal and special food products, this particular selection will be dependent on availability as we get closer to the date, but no matter what, plan for a chinook salmon feast!)

Award-winning-chef-passes-on-Secrets-at-FarestartxOur grill will be manned by chef Varin Keokitvon and Slow Food Regional Governor Gerry Warren, both members of the Slow Food Seattle Board. After we feast, join us for our annual meeting and to learn more about Slow Food and Slow Fish.

Members and non-members are all welcome!

**Ticket sales will end on 7/25 so we have our final count for our salmon feast. Sign up soon!**
