Slow Food East Gippsland’s High Tea in our Beautiful Botanic Gardens
Slow Food East Gippsland is holding a High Tea in Sale’s historic Botanic
Gardens to celebrate the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the
inception of the Gardens. Supported by the Wellington Shire Council and the
‘Friends of The Botanic Gardens’ members and friends are invited to come
and share an old-fashioned tea party served on pretty tablecloths, on
grandma’s fine china a delicious spread of tiny sweet cakes, sponges and
cucumber sandwiches. A large marquee will protect guests from inclement
weather and seating will be provided.

Food writer, Hilary McNevin will be addressing the group about the importance of making sustainable food choices in fish and seafood. Hilary is the author of “Guide To Fish” in which fish species selection is advised and relevant recipes are given. Copies of Hilary’s book will be available for sale. Last year’s High Tea
was a great success with Rosa Mitchell (author of “My Cousin Rosa“)
delighting those gathered talking about her Sicilian heritage, how it shaped
her own life choices. and establishing ‘Journal Canteen’ in Flinders Lane in Melbourne.

The High Tea is to be held on Sunday, October the 17th at 2 p.m. The cost is $12.00 to members and $15.00 to friends. Reservations are essential and can be made by
