BRATS & BRAWN
259 Allandale Road
October 2nd, 11am-1pm
Join us for an afternoon of good ol' fashioned fieldwork followed by a delicious bratwurst lunch next month at Allandale Farm in Chestnut Hill!
We'll convene at 11am to hear about the history of the farm along with its challenges and successes over the years from General Manager,
John Lee. After a brief tour, we'll get down and dirty weeding and harvesting what's in the fields, either for donation or for you to take home — bring your shopping bags!
After a few hours in the fields, we'll gather 'round the grill at 1pm to enjoy local sausages and other accompaniments. Since we'll have a cooler on hand, we encourage folks to bring beers and other refreshments to exchange with each other (you can drink as much as you can bring!)
Participation is limited to 20 - reserve your spot today!
*Due to the nature of this event, please plan on getting dirty; bring gloves, close-toed shoes, pants and sunscreen! Given the timing of this event and the draught, there is no rain date for this event. We will be in touch in the event of inclement weather.
2016 Slow Food Socials
383 Dorchester Avenue
October 11th, 6-9pm
On Tuesday, October 11th, join Slow Food Boston for our fall Slow Food Social! This season's social will be at the bar in GrandTen Distilling — the first fully functional cocktail bar inside a distillery in Boston.
The space is designed to enjoy cocktails directly from the source, or uniquely “still-to-glass.” Cocktails on the menu—both classic and modern—highlight the 11 spirits distilled on site and contain only ingredients produced in the distillery (think homemade syrups, shrubs and tinctures). Complimentary snacks from local purveyors and a cash bar will make for a delicious evening.
Since 2012, GrandTen Distilling been committed to producing spirits that are handcrafted from locally sourced ingredients. From their distinct Wire Works American Gin to their New England-style Medford Rum, they've taken the time to do things the right way and are focused on their craft above all else.
Don't miss out, register today!

2015 Disco Soup
Our recent Disco Soup event collected would-be wasted food and redistributed it to those in need.
Not your average dinner party, a Disco Soup brought together guests for a night of hands-on food preparation followed by good food, music, and company. The twist is that the produce on hand would have been destined for landfill. Ingredients for cooking were donated by Food for Free — a nonprofit that collects would-be wasted food and redistributes it to those in need. In keeping with Food for Free's mission, Disco Soup donated the food prepared at the event.
Tour De Farms
Slow Food Boston, in partnership with the Culinary Guild of New England, welcomed the summer season of bountiful farming with our Tour de Farms in S. Dartmouth and Westport, along the picturesque south Massachusetts coast.
Everyone biked a 12 mile loop over flat roads, visiting three neighboring food producers and picnicked on an organic farm, experiencing a taste of local farm products in the beautiful landscape in which they are grown and produced, followed by a visit to a vineyard and local brewery.
Tour de Farms riders were specially welcomed onto each farm, hearing directly from the owners and operators about the history of their farms, the products they offer and were able to sample their good, clean, and fair food, which included organic herbs, vegetables, beef, and locally produced beer and wine.
