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!




Third and Last Info Meeting!!!!

September 23, 2008

What can you make out of this?

Anyway, Hampshire Slow Food is meeting this Thursday in Dakin Living Room at 7:30pm to discuss our future. We attempted this last week but very few were in attendance. Please turn out to this, our last info meeting of the semester. Also, please prepare and bring a dish. Made of what? POTATOES! We are asking everyone that can to bring a dish that includes the potato in some way, shape or form. Any other type of dish will also be appreciated as Tam and I aren’t preparing a meal for the group.

Some issues we will discuss is the Slow Food on Campus group fee we have to pay and whether or not we want to participate in Hampshire Halloween (food perhaps?).

Please let us know if you cannot make it. We need lots of warm bodies at this meeting so that we know what you want to do. Use this “wordpress” and all of its information if you have any questions about the movement (or if your friends do).

We’re planning on going over our plans for this semester. So if you have any ideas, now is the time to articulate them.

As always, bring your own plates, silverware, drinks and ideas.

Recipes From Our 1st Meeting!

September 14, 2008

Corn Chowder via Food Network’s Tyler Florence

2 tablespoons butter 
Extra-virgin olive oil 
1 onion, diced 
2 garlic cloves, minced 
6 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves only 
1/4 cup all-purpose flour 
6 cups canned vegetable stock 
2 cups heavy cream 
2 Idaho potatoes, peeled and diced 
6 ears corn 
Salt and freshly ground black pepper 
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves

Heat the butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a soup pot over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and thyme and cook until the vegetables are good and soft, 8 to 10 minutes. Dust the vegetables with flour and stir to coat everything well. Pour in the vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Add the cream and the potatoes, bring to a boil and boil hard for about 7 minutes, until the potatoes break down (this will help to thicken the soup and give it a good texture).Cut the corn kernels off the cob and add to the soup. Season with salt and pepper and simmer until the corn is soft, about 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in the parsley and give it another little drink of olive oil. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve. 


Random Veggie/Tofu Saute

  1. Firm Tofu
  2. 1/2 eggplant
  3. Carrots
  4. Scallions
  5. Garlic
  6. Tomatoes
  7. Sesame Oil
  8. 1 small/hot chili
Hope you enjoy these if you recreate them.
