Pardon that Lapse

December 10, 2008

Hey, sorry about the looooong time between posts. We were having technical difficulties.

Alright, the semester is winding down. Please remember to feed your bodies the best you can by caring about what you eat and where it comes from. During finals, it can be hard to find time to prepare a meal and sit down and enjoy it. We understand this. Just plllllease find a way to care for yourself as much as you care about your work. It matters!

The Rest of the Month

October 26, 2008

Hello, we have plenty of goods coming up for rest of the month of October.


We will be viewing The Future of Food on Wednesday, Oct. 29th at 6:30pm in FPH 104.


On Thursday– at 7pm–we will be hitting the pavement to deliver chocolates to Hampshire College. We will have multiple groups going out and visiting Hampshirites to talk about fair trade chocolate. We are doing this the day before Halloween.


This Friday at 12pm, Hampshire Slow Food will be hosting an autumn potluck to celebrate the season and its food. Come by Mod 10 (in Greenwich) to indulge in seasonal eats and great company. Tell you friends and spread the word. Use the season’s harvest to prepare a fantastic meal. You can even bring ingredients with you and prepare something “live” at Mod 10!!! Have the best lunch you have had this semester by attending this awesome event complete with goodies from Get Baked.

Please take note of all of these events and spread the word. If you have any questions about anything mentioned here (or not mentioned) please comment or email us at slowfoodhampshire@gmail.com!!!

Chocolat Creativity and Other News

October 18, 2008

Hello, last night we viewed (and enjoyed) Chocolat. Some individuals brought chocolate dishes:

Chocolate Pear Tart

Chocolate Pear Tart



And this is just the beginning of the film fest. Next up is Future of Food but more about that later.

Thank you to everyone that showed up and contributed dishes.

We ask that you keep an eye on intranet announcements about awesome events happening in MA and on campus.

Screening of Chocolat tomorrow

October 16, 2008


This friday we will be viewing and enjoying the film Chocolat (2000). This is also another opportunity to make-what-you-can…with CHOCOLATE!!! There are some people out there that love chocolate. Perhaps you are one of them. Take some chocolate (most is not slow, sadly) and transform it into something delicatable. We believe in you!



Going into Fall Break

October 8, 2008

Hello everyone. As we enter fall break I would just like to keep you updated in regards to our schedule.

Our order of chocolates for Reverse Trick-or-Treating will be shipped to us soon. We will be providing the address for shipment and paying the shipping fee. Then we wait. We have decided that we will be doing RTT on the day before Halloween since on the night of the 31st Hampshire will be unavailable (to say the least).

We will be having our first film of the Hampshire Slow Food Film Fest on Thursday, October 16th upon our return to campus. We will be publicizing these event as much as we can while we are away. Also, we will be asking people to prepare a dish that does CHOCOLATE justice for the sake of the film Chocolat. More about this later.

We have gained enough funds (from 10 people) to give to Slow Food on Campus and SFUSA. We will be sending in all of our information before the break begins. Thank you to everyone who paid the $10 US. We greatly appreciate your commitment.

Lastly, while you are away, please keep Hampshire Slow Food in mind. Think of how you would like to contribute to our Hampshire Halloween event and the Farm Festival happening on November 7th. Consider what we can do as a group for the holiday of Thanksgiving.

Eat slow and be merry. ENJOY YOM KIPPER AND COLUMBUS DAY!!!!
