Slow Food Ubud - Indonesia's only Slow Food Convivium outside Jakarta, celebrates its first anniversary on Friday, December 3, 2010, with a dinner at Maya Ubud Resort in Pejeng, Ubud.

The dinner will feature Spanish-Basque cuisine with a special menu designed and presented by Maya Ubud Resort chef and "slow food" member Kath Townsend, with almost all ingredients sourced in Bali. Last year's dinner launching the Slow Food Ubud Convivium held at Linda Garland's Estate featured dishes prepared by chefs and restaurants from around Ubud.

The History of Slow Food

The Slow Food movement was founded over 20 years ago in Italy as a protest against fast food and everything it represented. Ubud's Slow Food Convivium was launched in December 2009, becoming one of over 1,000 such groups spread across 132 countries. Its mission is to celebrate the flavors of fresh, locally grown seasonal foods, support producers, provide nutritional education and ensure access to food that is clean, sustainable and fairly grown.

"We started a Slow Food group in Ubud because we care profoundly about the quality and sustainability of the food we eat and the welfare of the people who produce it," says Convivium Leader, Mary Jane Edleson. "Education and outreach are important parts of our mandate."

In 2011, Slow Food Ubud planned activities include field trips, site visits, cooking classes, workshops and a private visit to Indonesia's first bean-to-bar chocolate factory.

The anniversary dinner and raffle is a fund-raiser for Slow Food Ubud's main project to promote the wing bean, a valuable traditional vegetable with huge potential for improving nutrition and reducing soy bean imports.

The ticket price for Slow Food members is Rp 350,000 and for non-members Rp 500,000.

Memberships are available via [www.slowfood.com]

Join the Party

Seating at the anniversary dinner is limited. Last year's event sold out very quickly and guests are urged to reserve early to avoid disappointment. Email ribitubud[at]yahoo.com or catalystbali[at]gmail.com for reservations.

Free ticket delivery is available in the Ubud area.
