Event Announcement: Slow Food LA and Tapas

This week we are thrilled to present a very special dinner as a collaboration of Angeli Caffe and SlowFood LA. In keeping with the Slow mission to support local artisans and their products, Angeli Caffe will feature the local Spanish charcuterie La Española. They make what is probably the best locally produced charcuterie in Southern California. To show off their products, Evan Kleinman and her chef Kathy Ternay will create a varied Tapas menu that focuses on La Española products and local produce and fish bought at the Santa Monica Farmers’ Market. TELEMUNDO TELEVISION will be there to talk to Slow members.

When: Thursday, April 28, 2005 at 7:00pm
Where: Angeli Caffe, 7274 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles 90046
Cost: $30 Slow Food members; $40 nonmembers (does not include wine, tax, gratuity). A portion of proceeds will be donated to the Slow Food convivium.
