The Kings of Pastry dessert tasting, Dec. 14

The Kings of Pastry! This is going to be cool. We thought our Slow Food community might like to know about this groovy event being held at The Nickelodeon on Dec. 14 at 6pm:

Back by popular demand, this film is a dandy for foodies. Local arts denizen Jean Denman has organized a fab dessert tasting party and talkback with local pastry chefs and sparkling wine!

Treats from Chocolate Nirvana, Motor Supply, Cupcake, and The Pie Girl; bubbly from Morganelli's; and a panel w/the sage Kaitlin Ohlinger (a.k.a. the Wine Snob) from Cellar on Greene, Patrick Wagner of the Culinary Institute of the Carolinas, and the ridiculously talented Travis Weatherford of the Immaculate Consumption!

Check it out and buy tix at the Nickelodeon Theatre's website:

We love our local Slow Food community!

Happy holidays and thank you to everyone who bought tickets to the Southeastern Cheesemakers wine and cheese tasting this Friday -- it has sold out! Woo hoo!
