One potato, two potatoes...

Thank you to all who attended the opening of the Waitakere Slow Food Photographic Award on 22 September 2008.

We had a great evening with wines provided by Coopers Creek and a Potato based menu:

Roast potato rolled canapés with rocket salad and gorgonzola piccante cheese
4 types of Focaccia with potatoes (just potato, potato and pesto, potato and Moroccan seasoning, and potato and cheese)
2 types of Spanish Tortillas (potato and red onion, and potato, spring onion and cheese)
Rich Potato and Chocolate Cake
Potato and corn meal gluten free soft biscuits
Thank you to Sue, Rosemarie and Annette for helping with the catering.

It was great to see such a variety of entries exhibited and on behalf of Slow Food Waitakere I would like to thank the artists who submitted a photo, and congratulate the winners:

Jill Jessop – K Road, 1970 (Society) Christine Johannis – Still Life with Mashed Potatoes (Food) Elizabeth Mertens – The Universal Vegetable (Amateur) Max Nyenkamp – My Favourite! (Special mention)

Thank you also to the Judge for the event, photographer John Chapman, to Lopdell House gallery manager Lesley Smith, Public Programmes Coordinator Mels Barton, and all the staff at the Lopdell House for their great support.

The event was possible thanks to the generosity of
