On Friday, June 11, diners around the world who are members of Slow Food, the organization that promotes the non-corporate food producers everywhere, will gather to enjoy a seafood dinner. It’s to remind diners and everyone else how critical the preservation is of the oceans on a daily basis.

The local Slow Food Glades to Coast chapter is partnering with the Four Seasons Palm Beach for the area dinner. The timing couldn’t be more significant, though it wasn’t so planned. These dinners have been in the works for months – long before the BP oil disaster.

A classy menu and wine pairing

The Four Seasons’ executive chef Darryl Moiles will present his menu based on local seafood:

Chilled White Gazpacho, Toasted Almonds

Wild Mushroom Risotto, Summer Truffle

Ricotta Agnolotti, Fennel Pollen

Zero Pointe Cabernet Franc 2008

How to get tickets

Tickets are $99 (all inclusive). A portion of each ticket goes to Slow Food Glades to Coast. It’s part of the organization that promotes small farms, artisan cheesemakers and bread bakers and such – and small fishermen and shrimpers who supply most of the nation.

 Get tickets by contacting Betty Taylor at 561.533.3748 or email: betty.talyor@fourseasons.com. Buy your ticket by 5 p.m. Thursday, June 10, and you will be entered in a raffle to win a one night stay at the Four Seasons Palm Beach, and a spa treatment.
