2012 Slow Food Triangle Traditional New Year's Day

Slow Food Triangle is proud to announce our fourth annual Traditional Southern New Year’s Day event to celebrate regional culinary traditions, local farmers, and artisan food producers. This year, proceeds from the event will benefit a new schoolyard garden at Durham's Rogers-Herr Middle School.

The event will take place from 4-7 pm on Sunday, January 1, 2012, at Durham’s Fullsteam Brewery. The traditional Southern New Year’s Day meal will be served at 5 pm and include collard greens, cornbread, and hoppin’ john, as well as fresh, hearth-baked loaves, sweet potato pie, and more (vegetarian options will be available). Admission to the event is $15 for Slow Food members, $18 for non-members, and free for children 10 and younger. Wine Authorities and 3 Cups will offer wine to purchase by the glass; Counter Culture Coffee will provide coffee; and the Fullsteam bar will be open for business. Additional sponsors include Anson Mills, Big Spoon Roasters, Eastern Carolina Organics, Scratch Baking, The Splinter Group, Universal Printing and Piedmont. All wine sales will benefit the Rogers-Herr schoolyard garden project.
