Slow Food East End

Join Us for a Very Special

Slow Food Market Dinner 

at Fresh Hamptons  

 

Slow Food East End is thrilled to announce a Slow Food Market Dinner at Fresh Hamptons in Bridgehampton. Todd Jacobs, chef/owner, has created a special Slow Food menu just for us!

 

Conviviality is central to Slow Food's mission. By sponsoring dinners such as this, we connect people who want to share the joy of Slow Food. Getting together to share a meal and face-to-face conversation, meeting farmers and chefs, learning and hearing each other's stories, appreciating flavors and preparation methods -- this is how we truly connect with where our food comes from and with one another.

 

Chef Jabobs is a big supporter of Slow Food. Todd has donated wonderful foods for three different Slow Food events during the past year. His Fresh Hamptons restaurant is about family, friends, food and fun. He uses organic and locally grown produce whenever possible, as well as local fish, chicken and beef.
