Bonaira Picnic – Home and Dry

The welcome rain on Sunday 9 February saw our beginning of year picnic moved from last year’s venue in the Bonaira Native Garden to Rhonni and Paul’s place overlooking the Reid Street end of the reserve.

While outdoor chairs were left at home everyone arrived with picnic plates, glasses, thermoses and cutlery and, of course, fine wine/ alcohol free beverages and fantastic food.

As always, many ingredients for the dishes were sourced either from member’s home gardens (thanks particularly to David and Judith Ball for their produce) or from local suppliers.

Carolyn did a great job co-coordinating the dishes so that we had a good mix of starters, mains and desserts.

We were happy to welcome new members, Susan and Russell. A great start to the 2020 year and everyone is looking forward to another interesting year of Slow Food workshops and get togethers.  If you are interested in finding out more about Slow Food Saddleback please check the CONTACT US section of this web site and get in touch.
