We love that there are local organizations so closely aligned to our mission. One such group is Slow Food North Shore, one of two Long Island chapters of the nonprofit group Slow Food USA, headed up by chef, food activist, and our good friend Bhavani Jaroff of ieatgreen.com.

Two exciting Slow Food events in June will introduce you to what Slow Food North Shore is all about: getting together to share good ideas and delicious, clean, local food. On June 16, enjoy a tour of the Brooklyn Grange Rooftop Farm in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, plus a wine tasting at the rooftop vineyard, Rooftop Reds. The evening is capped off with gourmet pizza you don’t want to miss.

And don’t miss Slow Food North Shore’s Summer Solstice Potluck Party on Sat., June 17, featuring great food (Rising Tide will be providing the Cocktail Hour munchies!), live music, and a beautiful setting at Restoration Farm in Old Bethpage. A bunch of us will be there…hope to see you!
