We're sending a quick newsletter bulletin to announce a forthcoming evening organised collaboratively by Slow Food Edinburgh and SFYN Scotland which will be part of Scotland's Terra Madre day celebrations. We do hope you can join us!
Slow Food Edinburgh and the Slow Food Youth Network Scotland are delighted to celebrate Terra Madre Day with our upcoming Terra Madre Tales evening on Wednesday 7th December at Ostara Cafe, Leith.
We'll be hearing from some of Scotland's delegates to 2016's Terra Madre gathering in Turin who'll be sharing their stories and experience with us. In celebration of Slow Food's current Love the Earth,
Defend the Future campaign we'll be enjoying a delicious selection of artisan cheeses from Scotland and beyond, together with a taste of Scottish charcuterie, kindly provided by Scottish delegate Rachel Hammond of Hammond Charcuterie.
We'll also be joined by Scottish cheese expert and Ark of Taste Coordinator Wendy Barrie to tell us a bit more about the work of the artisan cheesemaker. Tickets are £15 plus booking fee and all proceeds from the night will be donated to support Errington Cheese.
Join us for a cosy, intimate evening of storytelling over cheese, wine and candlelight.

What is Terra Madre Day?
Terra Madre Day is Slow Food’s annual day to promote the diversity of food traditions and production, and show how our network is using its creativity and knowledge to express our love for the planet and defend the future for the next generations.
Since 2009, each year on Slow Food’s anniversary, December 10, food communities and Slow Food convivia all around the world celebrate local eating, agricultural biodiversity and sustainable food production. Celebrations take shape with hundreds of events ranging from collective meals, fundraisers, community festivals, protests, workshops for children, excursions to producers, and much more. It’s our way of demonstrating diversity and Slow Food’s philosophy of good, clean and fair food to communities, the media and decision makers.
Join in with our celebrations this year or if you can't attend our event feel free to create your one gathering with friends or family.
Terra Madre Day can be celebrated in an endless number of ways, from small gatherings to large events: a celebratory picnic; a film screening to raise the profile of good, clean and fair food; an excursion to visit producers; a campaign or petition on a particular issue, didactic activities, a local gathering of producers, chefs, youth and others… Be creative!

Get involved on December 10th! Find an event close to you or create one, simple or elaborate, large or small, based on your interests, creativity and availability.
The Slow Food Youth Network (SFYN) is an international network of young people who bring about changes in the field of food production and consumption. It was founded by a number of enthusiastic and motivated young people with a passion for good, clean and fair food, and with an interest in sustainability issues.
We are the world's future leaders, entrepreneurs, farmers and consumers. The Slow Food Youth Network (SFYN) was founded to make youth familiar with Slow Food's philosophy that says that all food should be Good, Clean and Fair. This means that food should be prepared with care and respect, grown as sustainable as possible and that the farmers and producers should get a fair wage.
SFYN raises awareness among young citizens and consumers to encourage and mobilize them in making responsible choices. It wants them to take part in the public debate about current issues, such as how to feed the world, what to do about food waste, and how to produce food as sustainable as possible.
