On Monday, December 10th, Slow Food will host their Holiday Slow Sips Happy Hour. The event will take place on the patio at Basic Kitchen from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm and is sponsored by Camellia's Beans and Meatless Monday in conjunction with Slow Food's annual celebration of Terra Madre day.
Basic Kitchen will be providing a meatless chili with beans donated from Camellia's and there will be wine and beer available for purchase. All proceeds will go to Slow Food Charleston. In addition, Basic Kitchen will have the chili on special throughout the week and $1 from every dish sold will be donated to Slow Food.
Terra Madre Day is a major Slow Food event, celebrating local food on a global scale. Every December 10th, thousands of people around the world organize parties and gatherings to celebrate good, clean, and fair food: good quality and flavorsome; clean for our bodies, for animals and for the planet; fair for producers and consumers alike. Terra Madre Day brings together all who share the vision of a food system that supports local economies, that respects the environment, biodiversity, taste, and tradition.
To protect our environment and to shine a light on the link between food and climate change, this year, Terra Madre Day is focused on "Food for Change," Slow Food’s international fundraising campaign to highlight the role of food as a cause, victim, and potential solution to climate change.
