Benefit: A Tour Through Italy
Come with us on Ã,ÂÃ,ÂA Slow Journey through ItalyÃ,ÂÃ,Â!
Join Slow Food South Bay and Donato Enoteca on Thursday, September 2, as we celebrate Terra Madre and the delightful food of Italy. This special dinner and fundraiser will benefit Collective Roots, an East Palo Alto nonprofit focused on garden-based learning and food systems change, on their journey to Italy as delegates to Terra Madre. Terra Madre is a Slow Food biennial conference for food producers, cooks, educators and students that brings together food communities from around the world to share innovative solutions for global sustainability in food.
Chef Donato Scotti takes you on a delicious tour with his unique pan-Italian cuisine -- inspired by local, organic produce from Collective Roots, Happy Quail, Marchini and Iocopi Farms. His menu for this event includes Antipasti Organico, Ravioli Melanzani and Roast Veal Loin Peperonata. Donato Enoteca is Michelin Guide 2010 recommended and its wine list has received the prestigious Wine Spectator 2010 Award of Excellence.
The journey begins at 6:00PM with a silent auction of food and garden delights -- wines and wine tours, garden instruction from Collective Roots, autographed books and more. Learn about Collective Roots'Ã,ÂÃ,Â work to educate youth and adults in designing sustainable organic gardens and support 'Good, Clean and Fair' food while enjoying an enchanting evening in Chef Donato'Ã,ÂÃ,Âs elegant private dining room.
