A Slow Food Convivium in Coastal SC[ Member listing ]
19 Feb · Sat 2011
Our first meeting was a grand success. More than 20 people attended our inaugural meeting. Our guest speaker Mr. David White (the Chickenman) gave an informative talk on his experience with raising free-range chickens and how it affects the local economy and food industry.
Most guests brought food to share with the group, two free-range chickens were donated by David (Oaklyn Farms) and prepared by Sharon Saleeby. The concensus on the herb-roasted free-range chicken was two thumbs up.
Our next meeting will be held in Myrtle Beach and hopefully at one of the local restaurants. We look forward to meeting everyone again and will get down to the business of formalizing the group and taking nominations for officers.
