Jeff Roberts, the author of Salted and Cured, visits Agricola Farm to discuss his book and the art and culture of cured meat. Italian butcher Zazie MIcheletta will tell us about efforts to preserve a heritage sheep breed in the Italian Alps and his special cured sheep meat. As part of the 'apericena' (in between an aperitif and a dinner) we will sample cured meats made by Agricola Farm (pork and sheep products) and from Babette's Table (French-style cured pork products).

World Disco Soup Day is a culinary and musical act of protest that began in 2012 with the Slow Food Youth Network in Germany. Since then, events have spread across the world as a fun, meaningful way to bring food insecurity and food waste into focus with delicious impact -- hundreds of millions of tons of food have been diverted from landfills, compost heaps, and dumpsters right onto plates.
Slow Food Vermont is once again teaming up with youth chapters at area colleges, the Chittenden County Emergency Food Shelf, and area chefs and farms to host Vermont's 2nd Annual Disco Soup Celebration! (Last year we gleaned 1700# of produce that contributed to 3,000 meals!)
Save the date and come help us chop our way to end hunger!
We'll post more details about how to get involved soon.

Beans are amazing in nearly every way -- they are visually stunning, they are nutritional powerhouses, they lend a satisfying meaty texture to any dish, are good as a stew or a salad, and can you can even use the water they were soaked in to replicate a meringue! The possibilities are endless, and for this potluck, we aim to celebrate all the ways you can use them (dried or otherwise) as an accessory or foundation for your culinary repertoire!
Our hosts have room for 20 guests, so make sure to RSVP to save your spot!
