Slow Food Austin reconnects people with the food they eat. Our educational initiatives, social activities, fundraising events, and community volunteer projects inspire respect for where food comes from and awaken true pleasure in eating.

happy hour: whip in 9/20/12

September 18, 2012

Date: Thursday, September 20th, 2012 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Location: Whip In, 1950 Interstate 35 Frontage Road, Austin, TX 78704

Slow Food Austin will host our Third Thursday Happy Hour at the newly-renovated Whip In.  The happy hour will include locally sourced appetizers prepared by Chef Martine Pelegrin, along with wine selections and a specially brewed beer.

Chef Martine Pèlegrin (néeTorres-Apónte), formerly of Bistro Le Marseillais, Chez Nous Bistro and Houston’s beloved La Mora Cucina Toscana, is a life-long cook and student of cooking. Heading up the Whip-in kitchen since the spring of 2011, she fuses authentic Indian home cooking with classic French technique, organic and locally-sourced goods, and regional flavors to create a post-colonial cuisine she calls pan-equatorial comfort food.

$15 donation includes food and beverages.

Proceeds from the Happy Hour support Slow Food Austin Programming.
