Celebrate the Start of 2017 with Slow Food North Shore (And Unlimited Beer)

The end of the holidays can be kind of a letdown, but Slow Food North Shore has found a way to let you down slowly – by celebrating their New Year of food at the end, rather than the beginning, of January.

“We are waiting for the craziness to die down, and the quiet dark nights of winter to settle in. Then…. we are going to party,” says Slow Food North Shore chapter chair, chef, local food personality and educator, Bhavani Jaroff.

The festive event will take place at Oyster Bay Brewing Company (one of Edible Long Island’s 2015 Local Heroes) on Sunday, January 29 from 5 pm-8 pm and will include unlimited beer (yes, we said unlimited) and a full course dinner buffet. To check out the menu, please see below.

“We have reserved a section of the brewery for our Slow Food North Shore Chapter,” Jaroff says. “Our Slow Food Board members will be preparing all of the food, with the principles of clean, local, seasonal, fair and good in the forefront of our offerings.

“We’ll start out with a cocktail hour, and passed hors d’oeuvres, and then move on to a buffet dinner, followed by an assortment of desserts. During the dinner, we will make a short presentation about Slow Food, and the upcoming Slow Food Nations event, scheduled for July 14-16 in Denver, CO.”

New and potential new members are welcome. Tickets are $25 for members and $35 non-members. To purchase tickets, click here.
