Slow Food's Pig Roast

The New York City and East End (Long Island) chapters of Slow Food USA are joining forces again to throw their 3rd ANNUAL PIG ROAST at PAUMANOK VINEYARDS at 1074 Main Rd. (Rt. 25) in Aquebogue on the North Fork of Long Island on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 6 at 6:p.m., rain or shine.

Folks will enjoy the best, local, East End bounty; raw bar, whole hog BBQ (with all the fixins), dessert, and, throughout, Paumanok wines, all accompanied by live jazz.

Paumanok winemaker Kareem Massoud will pour the great, award-winning wines of Paumanok Vineyards and Chef Bryan Futerman, of Foody's in Water Mill, will perform pig magic.

Tickets are available ONLY on-line (Search for "Slow Pig at Paumanok".) $85 Slow Food Member tickets and $95 Non-member tickets cover everything; food, drink, music, gratuities, and good times.

Proceeds will support the children's Good Food Education Programs of Slow Food East End and Slow Food NYC. In NYC, Slow Food NYC sponsors a Good Food Education Workshop and a Youth Farmstand at a school in East Harlem, and an Edible Schoolyard at another school in Williamsburg , Brooklyn .

On the East End, Slow Food East End supports the Good Food Education Program at the Hay Ground School , having donated a greenhouse to support a year-round Edible Schoolyard.

Slow Food is a national, not-for-profit association that supports a Good, Clean, and Fair Food Chain… one where food is real and authentic, where it is produced sustainably and humanely, and where producers are treated fairly and eaters have opportunity to enjoy good, clean food.
