Slow Food East End presents “Friday Farm and Food Films” at the Southampton Arts Center on Friday, March 1. The evening will include several videos, designed to inform and inspire viewers to appreciate and experience the East End’s waterways — from fishing and surf casting, to shellfish farming and harvesting sea salt.
The screening will be followed by a panel of local experts including Captain Peter Haskell, fisherman and founder of Haskell’s Seafood; Sean O’Neil, Peconic Baykeeper and fisherman; Deena Lippman, commercial fisher and deck hand; and Matthew Ketcham, owner of Ketcham’s Seafarm Peconic Gold Oysters.
Noted on its website, “Slow Food East End works to inspire our community and to partner with like-minded organizations to create a food web that is environmentally sustainable, preserves cultural traditions, is healthy and delicious, and celebrates the joys and justice around food that is good, clean, and fair.”
Doors open at 6:30 PM with light refreshments. From 7 to 8:30 PM will be the film and panel discussion. The cost is $15 for SAC and Slow Food members and $20 for non-members. Proceeds from the night will benefit Slow Food East End’s Agricultural Outreach Committee and Southampton Arts Center. Visit http://www.slowfoodeastend.org for more info and a link to tickets.
