3rd Annual Slow Food Spring Supper

It's that time of year again! On Saturday, May 5th, Slow Food Nova Scotia will host its 3rd Annual Spring Supper, presented by Taste of Nova Scotia and Wines of Nova Scotia in support of Slow Food Nova Scotia, the Canadian Chefs' Congress and Slow Food International's 1000 Gardens in Africa Project.

After two extremely successful years, Slow Food Nova Scotia is back with its third annual Spring Supper. Billed as the down home, no fuss, culinary event of the season, this year's dinner will feature 11 of the region's top chefs working together to bring you a staggering 7-course, locally-sourced Nova Scotian church supper unlike any other! All courses will be paired with Nova Scotian wines. Local food producers, brewers, vintners and foodies alike will round out this incredible evening. This event is open to the public.

Participating Chefs/Restaurants include: Chefs Craig Flinn (Chives Canadian Bistro), Dennis Johnston (Fid Resto), Roland Glauser (Charlotte Lane Café), Renée Lavallée (The Feisty Chef), Chris Velden (The Flying Apron Cookery), Jason Lynch (Le Caveau), Earlene Busch (Chanterelle Country Inn), Martin Ruiz Salvador (Fleur de Sel), Luis Clavel (Atlantica Hotel) and Zane Kelsall & Tara MacDonald (Two If By Sea Café). This is a remarkable volunteer effort as all the chefs, servers & organizers donate their time and work collectively towards spreading the Slow Food ethos of good, clean and fair local food for all.
