Join Us for the First Event

Let’s raise a glass together and kick off the year with a look at what we have planned for 2021 followed by an informative and delicious wine and chocolate tasting! Here’s what’s on the agenda:
The evening will start with the premiere screening of a new short film, We Are Slow Food , which explains who we are and how we connect with the East End via interviews with produce, livestock and marine farmers, food producers, a winemaker, educators and activists who all are part of our SFEE community. People featured in the film will be on hand to answer questions. All of these guests have a close connection with Slow Food East End sharing our mission, objectives and efforts, earning Snail of Approval awards or as recipients of past SFEE Resilience Grants which has helped them sustain, promote or optimize their businesses.
Wine and Chocolate Tasting
The second part of the evening, Celebrating 2021 with Wine & Chocolate, will include a tasting exploration with Ali Shaper and Robin Epperson McCarthy, co-owners of Chronicle Wines.
