Slow Food Oahu Pot Luck
Slow Food KCC members were invited to attend a potluck hosted by Slow Food Oahu last Sunday afternoon. Slow Food members and native Italians, Giampiero and Ezio, were responsible for the focus dish of the potluck, 20 lbs of fresh ahi tuna. The market fresh tuna was slowly braised in olive oil and made into a variety of simple but delicious dishes, including a creamy savory mousse and a bright and comforting tuna pasta with fresh tomato and basil. All the attendees contributed to the feast with tasty, seasonal offerings including Slow Food KCC's contributions of Hearts of Palm Salad, Babaganoush and a Korean steamed chicken and rice dish. We were asked to bring our own plates and utensils, this is a simple way to make a party a little greener and minimize clean up! The Slow Food Oahu group are a great bunch of folks and we look forward to future collaborations!
