Food and Festivities, December 15, 2013

You are invited to a Slow Food Salon 
Sunday, December 15, 2013, 3 to 5 pm 
City Perks Coffeehouse, 801 7th Avenue North 

Food and Festivities: What role does food play in your culture’s and family’s celebrations? 

Birthday cakes and funeral meats; a Seder meal and a Persian New Year’s dinner; lunch with friends or a family supper. Food is part of our culture and our family life. It brings us together and creates lasting ties.

Each culture and family celebrates differently. Join us from 3-5 pm on December 15  at City Perks Coffeehouse and share your most cherished memories of food, family and culture in a respectful and open atmosphere.

Coffee, tea and snacks will be available for purchase.

What is a salon?
A conversational salon is an ongoing gathering of people who share a passion for ideas. Conversational salons can be frontiers for social and cultural change. Less formal than facilitated meetings, salons feed the human need for connection and rely on natural synergies.

What is Slow Food? 
Slow Food Saskatoon is the local chapter of an international movement that links quality of food with quality of life. Slow Food believes that agriculture and food production should be based on the wisdom of local communities in harmony with their surrounding ecosystems.
