Slow Down Dinner at Whisper Creek Farm!

Join us for an unforgettable evening of dining under the stars at Grande Lakes Resort’s Whisper Creek Farm!

Slow Food Orlando is honored to be included in the Grand Opening of Whisper Creek Farm at the Orlando Grande Lakes Resort.  Whisper Creek Farm is an incredible project born from inspiration.  The Grande Lakes culinary team designed it with the help of My Yard Farm to provide the resort restaurants with fresh, organic produce.  The farm also offers al fresco dining for up to 250 people, making it the ideal location to host authentic farm-to-fork outdoor events (to learn more, check out this article from our friends at Edible Orlando).

That’s where we come in!  In celebration of the Grande Opening, we are partnering with Grande Lakes to present a SLOW DOWN Dinner. Guests will enjoy an authentic Argentinian BBQ using seasonal organic ingredients, signature cocktails and craft beer, local chef and farmer appearances, live music, and a silent auction benefiting Slow Food Orlando.

We know this will be an unforgettable evening, but we want to make it even more memorable.  That’s why we’re using this generous opportunity to launch the Slow Food Orlando Community Garden Fund!  Once it is adequately funded, we’ll be offering grants to local schools and organizations that need assistance installing, updating, or providing educational programming for their gardens.  We think this is a great way to support a community that values good, clean and fair food, and we hope you do to!  We hope you see you at the dinner, so please refer to the details below to make your reservation today!
