An amazing Slow Food Lunch

Salsa verde, starters and salads, and fresh watermelon juice with mint
A couple of weeks ago Slow Food Waitakere held a Forage to Feast lunch. We asked Ben Barton from Pop Dining to cook for us, and we foraged and collected food and flowers from our gardens, plus asked some Slow Food friendly businesses to help us out by giving us some leftovers (to follow our slow food principle of 'no waste' and to value leftovers). 
Look at the produce that Art of Produce donated! The chefs working hard
It was a lot of work, and so many people came onboard with labour and donated goods, here is a collection of few photos, but click here to read the full reportage (and the impressive menu!).

Roasting capsicums in the pizza oven and grilling the asparagus. Lots of hands needed for the broad beans
I made some dips, the vegetarian options and, of course, the dessert table.

The dessert table
The table, flowers from the garden, Angel food cake with flowers and elderberry flower syrup and mini banana trifles with kawakawa custard, mulberries and roses, Kawakawa and rose meringues

And of course tomorrow, 10 December, is Terra Madre Day, so happy Slow Celebrations to all!

Diners took all the leftovers home
