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.

slow session: apis and pizzeria sorellina, 5/27/2017

May 11, 2017

Date: Saturday, May 27th, 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Location: Apis Restaurant & Pizzeria Sorellina, 23526 TX-71, Spicewood, TX 78669
RSVP: Please claim a FREE ticket to reserve your spot.

This winter, chef-owner Taylor Hall and chef de cuisine Adam Brick launched Pizzeria Sorellina in Spicewood. True to the sustainable foundation they laid with Apis (the fine dining concept adjacent to Sorellina), Taylor and Brick have developed a virtually zero-waste, vertically integrated food system by partnering with local farmers and ranchers.

In this very special Slow Session, the chefs will lead participants on a tour of the apiary and garden, then see the animals raised on-site (pigs and chickens). Inside the pizzeria, James Brown (of Barton Springs Mill) will talk to the group about how they are working with the restaurant to grow their own wheat, and Brick will explain how they make all their salumi from wild boar. The presentation will be followed by a hands-on pizza-making demo — and a sampling of the fruits of your labor!

Please note that Apis/Sorellina is a 20-25 minute drive from downtown Austin. We are anticipating this to be a very popular event, so please only reserve a ticket if you are absolutely sure you will be able to attend! Once all the tickets are accounted for, email veronica@slowfoodaustin.org to join the waitlist. Looking forward to seeing you there!
