We are very pleased to be holding a social and promotional evening at Louis' Deli in Upper St Giles Norwich on Friday 13th March hosted by the Graham the owner who was one of our first Business and Approved scheme members in East Anglia.
Louis' Deli has been in Upper St Giles in Norwich for many years but recently it has become well known for the variety and quality of its local produce, now being rated as one of the must go to eat and meet places in the beautiful city of Norwich!
As well as serving the local community with an excellent choice of food and drink, another service offered at the Deli are informal free conversational language groups each weekday meeting at 3pm, the languages include French, Spanish and Italian.
Slow Food Norwich is currently working with Slow Food England on setting up the new Slow Food East Anglia area which will include the counties of Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire with new groups being established in Kings Lynn and Cambridge to add to the already well established and popular groups in Aylsham and East Suffolk.
The evening in Norwich in March will be primarily to raise the awareness of Slow Food as an organisation promoting good locally produced food to the local food and drink business community in Norwich as well as using the occasion to launch the new Approved scheme in Norwich.
As well as several other exciting developments with Slow Food in Norwich and East Anglia we will also be promoting the Slow food Planet App for iTunes which is currently available in other European countries and will now include London and East Anglia later this year.
The evening in Norwich will have members of Slow Food Norwich and also Shane Holland the leader of Slow Food London and board member of Slow Food England who will be giving a short talk about the new developments in both east Anglia and Slow food England.
Louis' Deli is a quite a small intimate venue but because of the size unfortunately we will have to limit the total number of guests to the Slow food evening to just twenty four, while the evening will begin at 6.30 and finish by 9.30pm.
This event is part of the series of regular monthly meetings and social events to be held by Slow Food Norwich and East Anglia and we will in the future be holding tastings and workshops in other venues in both Norwich as well as other towns and villages in the county of Norfolk.
Later in the year we will also be setting up similar events in both Suffolk and Cambridgeshure and hope to work closely with both the UEA and Cambridge University of sustainability issues which affect food businesses in East Anglia.
