Slow Food Sacramento Presents A Harvest Pear Affair
Join Slow Food Sacramento and Tim Neuharth from Steamboat Acres to celebrate the end of harvest with an orchard tour where he will discuss the challenges of organic pear farming in the Delta, and Chris Zanobini from the California Pear Advisory Board will conduct a tasting with information on history and pear varieties. The orchard floor near the river will serve as a beautiful background for a shared potluck picnic with fellow foodies, and dessert diva Kira ODonnell prepares scrumptious pear galettes.
Please bring: Festive picnic fare, drinks, blankets or chairs, picnic ware (no disposables), and please bring a favorite potluck appetizer, side dish or entree to share with someone you meet at the picnic. Sharing good food with new friends is a goal for all Slow Food events.
