‘Slow’ Dinner & Film Event at Grano, November 18

slowA groundbreaking photographic journey into the heart of an Italian town steeped in culinary tradition  that is a tribute to the slow food movement and the everyday pleasures of food.

Slow: Life in a Tuscan Town
Photographs and text by Douglas Gayeton
Introduction by Alice Waters and preface by Carlo Petrini

Grano – one of my favourite restaurants – has been asked to participate in a continent-wide launch of this ‘moving book’ which has been dubbed a ‘flat film’. I’m selecting the wines for the dinner.

Wednesday November 18 @ 7 pm

To reflect the origins of the author’s Italian nonna from the town of Camposanto, provincia di Modena, Lucia Ruggiero-Martella has created a multi-course menu inspired by Toscana. Lucia will use fresh Ontario and uniquely Italian ingredients (Frescobaldi Laudemio extra vergine olio d’oliva, parmigiano reggiano, aceto balsamico tradizionale di Modena (‘real balsamic vinegar’).

Cost: $125.00 includes all foods, wines, taxes & gratuities and, of course, a copy of this magical book ($62.00 value) with a signed commemorative bookplate (or $ 200.00 per couple, 1 book).
$10.00 from each ticket sale will be donated to The Second Harvest

RSVP 416.440.1986  or email rdm@grano.ca
Grano is located at 2035 Yonge St, north of Davisville in Toronto M4S 2A2

Presented in collaboration with The Cookbook Store & Edible Toronto
