Colette's Artbar, The Fringe Club (Central)
One of the best parts of living in a globally connected city like Hong Kong may also be one of its greatest challenges. While we have access to such an abundance of food from all over the world, we also run the risk of losing touch with the origins of our food, our local communities, as well as the impact of our food choices on the environment.
Rooftop Republic Urban Farming, in collaboration with Slow Food Hong Kong and The Hong Kong Fringe Club, is hosting an interactive session where we hope to introduce a new perspective towards our food culture where city-dwellers are more conscious of how their food is grown, and appreciate the process through which it comes to our table.
This 1.5 hour session will begin with a visit and introduction to the rooftop farm at The Fringe Club, where seasonal vegetables and herbs are being grown for use in their menu. Sandra of Slow Food Hong Kong will share their insights on the slow food culture and philosophy through a cooking demonstration, while Chef Joe of Colette's will serve up a delicious vegetarian lunch, all using fresh locally produced seasonal vegetables and herbs.
