More Chinese New Years – Slow Food Chinatown Tour

More Chinese New Years – Slow Food Chinatown Tour 
March 8, 2015 from 9:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. (includes lunch)
March 22, 2015 from 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. (no lunch)

On the heels of the celebrations for Chinese New Year, Slow Food O’ahu is offering not one, but two tours in March. You will have the opportunity to choose from a tour on March 8 with tour guide Tom Sheeran that includes lunch OR a tour on March 22 with tour guide Laurie Carlson that is shorter, without lunch.

The history, cultures, and ethnic foods of this vibrant community are the focus of the tour.  In keeping with the international Slow Food movement value of appreciation for cultural diversity, we have created the tour with these principles in mind: recognizing food as a language that expresses cultural diversity preserving the myriad traditions of the table cultivating and reinvigorating a sense of community and place.  We will visit temples and historic sites.

The two tours are priced differently, depending on whether or not lunch is included.

The cost for the March 8 tour with lunch is $50 for members; $60 for non-members.  The limit is 8 people, just enough to fit around a large table for your post-tour lunch.

The cost for the March 22 tour is $30 for members; $40 for non-members, without lunch. The tour size is limited to 10 people.

Please sign up for either tour at  http://bit.ly/sfoevents  All Slow Food O’ahu events are listed.

Urban Honolulu 2:00 – 5:00 p.m.

Backed by incredibly popular demand is another urban foraging adventure led by Dr. Nat Bletter.  With 30 folks attending our January session, we know that this adventure is a very popular activity. Denby Fawcett, long-tme journalist, attended Nat’s January foraging adventure and describes not only the forahttp://www.civilbeat.com/2015/02/denby-fawcett-the-fine-art-of-urban-foraging/  plant.jpgging adventure but the art of foraging for wild food in Hawai’i.

If you want to be as inspired as Denby or our previous foragers, then you don’t have to head for the mountains or the rainforest to find edible treasures. Join Slow Food O`ahu for a foraging adventure in urban Honolulu and be amazed by what you’ll discover.

Dr. Nat Bletter, of Madre Chocolate, will be our very own Euell Gibbons, guiding us into the urban ‘wilds’ of Honolulu on March 28, 2015 from 2:00 – 5:00 pm. Wear sun protection and bring water, a fork & spoon to sample goodies, and paper and plastic bags to collect in.

Wear sun protection, bring water, and put on a good pair of exploring shoes. The cost is $10 for Slow Food members, $15 for non-members. Reserve at http://bit.ly/sfoevents by March 26, and upon reservations, we will send you an email with location and meeting details. Reservations are limited to 20 participants.
