Our annual membership meeting on Saturday turned out to be less a meeting than a leisurely day spent touring the fishponds, preparing our food, talking story over poi pounding, and of course, eating.
Below, Slow Foodies preparing food.

Keli‘i, community coordinator for the fishpond, takes us on a tour.

Here's our next adventure for February.
On Saturday, 2/21 we have an excursion planned for Waialua. We will need to meet at the Waialua Sugar Mill Market around 8:15 am. The market opens at 8:30. It's a small market and things sell out rather quickly.
At 9am we will do a coffee tasting at the Sugar Mill, at 10am we will visit a cacao farm nearby and at 11am we're off to see the Waialua Sodaworks.
Those who are interested can have lunch after the tour at El Palenque in Wahiawa, one of O'ahu's most authentic Mexican restaurants.
Cost is $5 for current SF members, $10 for non-members. Please send reservations with your checks to Michelle (see address below).
Once you sign up we can put you in touch with others, so carpooling will be easy.

Dear O'ahu Slow Foodies,
Our first event of the year is a joint potluck with SFO and SFKCC. It will be held Sunday January 18th at 1pm at Ezio's building at 1212 Nuuanu --in the wonderful party room on the 8th floor, between the koi ponds.
Giampiero and Ezio will show us how to prepare Hawaiian ahi Italian style--marinated in olive oil and as a mousse. I will bring my pasta maker for a short demonstration of the extruding method and the use of pasta dies.
Please RSVP by January 15th with Rachael at email@example.com so that we can get an accurate head count. We will need to supply your names to the security guard so that he will let you in. Also, please bring your own plates, utensils, etc.
Happy and slow new year to you all,
