Freshers' Fair and Re-Freshers' Fair

Slow Food Student is going to have a wee table in Examination Schools promoting itself and its plans for the coming year, as well as a few suppliers and markets that it wants to encourage people to go to.

We want people to see SFS as a hub for the exchange of ideas and advice connected to cooking good food in Oxford, rather than some kind of society along the lines of Food Soc or Gastro Soc. Our website, cooking classes and allotment are all strands of this ethos and we hope people will use them!

In collaboration with the Vaults & Garden and the Environment and Ethics Committee, Slow Food Student is organising a leisurely bike ride to Worton Farm on the evening of Tuesday 22nd May (5th week).

If you'd like to be shown around a local, organic mixed-farm and to have a Vaults and Garden picnic, then let me know (the farmer has a set limit of 30 on people for tours) and we'll be meeting on Broad Street (with bikes and the energy for a leisurely 30 min bike ride) at around 6pm before heading out.

The first ever Children’s Food Festival will take place over the weekend of the 14th and 15th July 2007 at the Northmoor Trust’s conservation farm, 10 miles south of Oxford, within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Change the Dream - Oxford Symposium

An 'Oxford Symposium' is taking place at the Quaker Meeting House on St. Giles. It is basically concerned with encouraging the individual to take responsibility for his/her actions in society and in the world, recognising the interdependence of people on each other and on their environment and also for informing themselves correctly of the issues involved. Issues such as organic farming, seasonal produce and air-miles will probably crop up so definitely worth checking out. This organisation tends to pick up big speakers, so watch this space for further details.

Students teaching/helping other students to cook

Our slightly crazy experiment in student cooking classes took place simultaneously in 5 different student kitchens throughout the university (see Ted's, Brian's, Claire's, Rachel's and David's pages for the recipes). We all met up in the Covered Market to buy the bulk of the ingredients, before returning to our respective kitchens and trying out whatever it was that took our fancy. My group certainly had a laugh while cooking and eating our feast and I've heard that the others were just as successful.
