Spend two hours one Sunday this summer sharing your passion for seasonal
local foods from the Farmer Market. Slow Food members and friends are
providing food demonstrations, talks and tastings at the Olympia Farmers
Market between 11 and 3 most Sundays this summer starting Memorial Day
weekend through September 29. Check you calendar, then sign up for a time slot that fits your
schedule at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040E4DA9A72EA02-2013.
The idea is to share simple recipes that feature fresh market produce. The
foods you prepare can be hot or cold (raw). The recipes need to be prepared
onsite at the booth or in the Lu kitchen so that you can provide small
portions to the public for tasting. Your time slot is the place to share
information on what you are cooking and why, and the benefits of cooking
with fresh local products.
Treacy Kreger will be in charge of setting up and taking down the
demonstration area located just outside the market office. He will be there
throughout the day to help in any way needed. He can provide the serving
items (paper plates, forks, etc) tabletop cooking burners with braising
pans, frying pans. Power is available if you want to use a blender or
mixer. The Lu kitchen, has a modest supply of mixing bowls, utensils, and two ovens (the top one with broiler), a gas stove top, a microwave,
and refrigerator. Tracey will also be doing taste comparisons at the booth
at the same time.
You can purchase products from the market that day or a couple days ahead
using market dollars. Contact Tracey to make arrangements -
Sign up for as many food demonstration slots as you would like. You can do a shift from 11:00 to 1:00 or 1:00 to 3:00, or do both shifts if you like. This is a
great way to share your interest in Slow Food with others in the community.
