Enjoy an Authentic Italian Meal at Congaree and Penn

Some of the best local farms and businesses have come together with Slow Food First Coast for a dinner and fundraiser like no other. Featuring the traditional Italian dish porchetta, the evening's feast will be created by Chef Kurt D'Aurizio. Guests will enjoy live music, local beer and wine and desserts created by My Grandmother's Pie.

Porchetta [porketta] is a savory and moist boneless pork roast of Italian culinary tradition. The body of the pig is gutted, deboned, arranged carefully with layers of stuffing, meat, fat, and skin, then rolled, spitted, and roasted, traditionally over wood. Porchetta is salted and stuffed with garlic, rosemary, fennel, and other herbs.

The dinner is at Congaree and Penn Farm & Mills. Tickets are $75. Proceeds will go to help transportation and meal expenses of our local delegates to Terra Madre in Turin, Italy.
