TABLE TALK: Paul DeCampo

December 5, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

- $20.00

Paul DeCampo, Director of Slow Food Toronto, will be talking about the principles at the heart of the Slow Food International movement, a key force in the global transformation of attitudes towards local and sustainable agriculture.

Slow Food began in Italy in 1986 to resist the opening of a McDonald’s in Rome. By 1989, the founding manifesto of the international Slow Food movement was signed by delegates from 15 countries. The Slow Food organisation has since expanded to include over 100,000 members with branches in over 150 countries and 35,000 members.

As a food activist, educator and marketer, Paul has worked to inspire a discussion of how we define high quality agriculture. Slow Food has been central to this effort, with its intersection of defending cultural traditions, sustainability and social justice.

Table Talks include a seasonal meal prepared by The Depanneur founder Len Senater.

I’ll be making a locally-sourced, organic, seasonal, scratch-made Slow Food-inspired menu — in December in Ontario! — starting with a Carrot & Squash Soup with Evelyn’s Red Fife Crackers, followed by Kapusta, a Polish sauerkraut (homemade!) and mushroom stew, served with potatoes, beet salad, and an optional garnish of locally-made sausage, with some fab Ontario sourdough from my neighbours at Prairie Boy Bakery. Finish with market fruit pies baked in the wood ovens of Dufferin Grove Park.

#vegetarian, #vegan and/or #glutenfree options will be available.

Doors open at 6pm, talk starts at 7pm
$20 (+HST) — includes dinner

Every month The Depanneur invites a local food personality to talk about something that interests them while Dep founder Len Senater cooks dinner for everyone.
