Introducing our Slow Winter Dinner Series

Introducing our Slow Winter Dinner Series

Scarecrow invites you to the Slow Winter Dinner Series in association with Slow Food Auckland.

We are delighted to announce 3 brand new events for your winter calendar. The Slow Winter Dinner Series consists of an exceptional 4-course dinner each month throughout winter. Each dinner highlights principles around food production & supply chains. We are partnering with local suppliers & wine producers & featuring  seasonal produce. These events are underpinned by the Slow Food Movement philosophy of food that is defined by three key principles: good, clean & fair.

Dates for your diary:
Saturday 26 June: Matariki Regenerative Farming Slow Dinner

Saturday 28 August: Urban & Permaculture Winter Harvest Slow Dinner (Vegan)

This is Scarecrow’s way to celebrate being an inaugural Slow Food Auckland Snail of Approval award recipient for 2021. What better time to kick things off than Matariki, the start of the Māori New Year, a time of reflection, growth & change. A time to pause, think about the previous year before we embark on the year ahead. Our first dinner is the Matariki Regenerative Farming Slow Dinner & features Durham FarmsGrinning Gecko Cheeses & wines from  Heron’s Flight & Passage Rock.

Please join us as we bring suppliers & community together in a forum of sharing & eating good food while learning about its provenance and production. Mark Saturday 26 June in your diary and make sure you get your tickets early. Spaces are limited to 36 and will go very quickly!

Stay tuned for details of July & August dinners. The dinners will be hosted at long shared tables; please advise if you are booking as a group. Gluten free options are available, please make note of this at our online checkout.
