Let's Cook and Share A Slow Meal. A Spring 2014 Campaign of Slow Food Russian River.|
The basic idea: People come together to cook a meal, sit down to eat it, and clean up. The meal is in the spirit of Slow Food: good, clean, and fair, for all. They document their meal is some way and share it online. This then inspires more people to host and participate in a Slow Meal.
If you wish to host a dinner yourself please contact SFRR Cook-In Team
So, it's not a potluck: meal preparation is done together, in the same space.
It's not a family meal: there are guests.
It's also not a dinner party: guest share the cooking with the host, the person who makes the invitation and provides the place where the cooking, eating and cleaning up is happening.
But the basic idea leaves still many options. They're like games with different constraints set by the host.
In this variant the host has created a menu with links to recipes. Each guest is asked to get ingredients for one of dishes on this list and bring a listed drink. Get tickets so everyone knows what has already been covered.
If needed do enough prep work at home so that finishing your dish in the hosts' kitchen takes another hour. Cooking starts at 5pm.
