Hi friends,

Another great Slow Food shared family meal is coming very soon:

A Cittaslow Thanksgiving Feast
on Thursday 22nd November
at 7 pm (for 7:30)
in the Diss Corn Hall (Waveney Room).

Freddie, of Frederick’s Fine Foods is preparing the turkey, which is local and organic. He will include a sweet potato stuffing and also a special veggie alternative for those who want one. Anyone who knows Freddie’s food knows how special it is.

For the rest of the meal – it’s up to you. Please bring either a vegetable dish or a dessert to share, using local ingredients if possible. We’ve done this before (at Palgrave and the Corn Hall) and the results were wonderful, fully justifying the word ‘feast’.

As usual, it will be very social. You will meet new people and old friends.

Special treat: Music from ‘Rough at the Edges’, a great local folk group.

Cost: £7 or £5 for members of Slow Food or Waveney Valley Food Group. (£6 for children, £4 for members children).
(Costs cover the turkey, room hire, food for band. Slightly subsidised by Slow Food Waveney Valley.)

Advance bookings only.

Please phone me on 07766-711999 or Ed Ling on 07775-846166
or buy tickets at the
Cittaslow Centre in Cobbs Yard,
Diss Town Council offices,
or the Tourist Information Centre by the Mere.

I would appreciate your help promoting this event.

Print out the poster and put it in your window or ask a shop to display it.


Hope to see you there.
