Sustainable Suppers in Culver City

Inspired by the underground clubinos of Italy, Jennie Cook is creating a catered community event, The Sustainable Supper Club. Cook’s Double Dutch will open its doors on Tuesday nights-–March 27th, April 24th, and May 29th–for an evening repast of locally grown foods from the Culver City farmers market.

Accentuated with lively dialogue, libations, and delicious desserts, the spirit of the event is in creating community conviviality. A dedicated omnivore, Jennie hopes to encourage awareness of the benefits of moderation and incorporating locally grown meals into our daily practices. The meal will be a celebration of all things vegan.

When: Three Tuesdays: March 27, April 24, and May 29, 2007, beginning at 6:00pm
Where: Cook’s Double Dutch, 9806 Washington Boulevard, Culver City 90232
Cost: $25.00 per person; Cook’s Double Dutch is offering a $5.00 to card-carrying Slow Food members

Whether you’re experimenting for the first time or dedicated to an animal-free diet, prepare for a different dining experience. Community seating will be arranged to encourage discussion and query regarding our food systems, and where we are in the big picture.

The meal will be served party style, featuring a bountiful plant-based buffet. The evening will include a selection of 4 seasonal offerings and dessert. A gracious amount of warm crusty bread and olive oil will be on every table. Mambo punch and Organic wine will be available for purchase through the honor system.
