Slow Food Spring Supper in Dartmouth

I don't normally publize events here but I couldn't resist mentioning this one. It's an over-the-top Slow Food Nova Scotia Spring Dinner put together by some of Nova Scotia's best chefs who all care deeply about using local ingredients, whipping up wonderful dishes and promoting local farmers and fishermen.

Now I realize that many of my readers live too far away to make it...

Spring Supper, May 7th at Christchurch Hall, Ochterloney Street, Dartmouth NS.

....but if you do live in or near Halifax or Dartmouth, I hope to see you there. And if you can't make it, I urge you to hunt for a local-to-you Slow Food event. There are a whole world of them here.

And just to entice you...
