Our first fundraising event: Slow Food for Africa

On 23rd May the First Coast restaurant on Dalry Road held a Tanzanian evening to support the Slow Food Edinburgh campaign to fund a community food garden in Kimashuku, Kilimanjaro.

A delicious meal included spinach and peanut samosa, goat and cornmeal mash and pineapple and coconut chapatti. 71 diners were served the regional meal, so, together with some separate donations from occasional diners, making a total of £200 towards the appeal.

Our sincere thanks to Chef Alliance member Chef Hector MacRae and the staff of First Coast for mounting this event and everyone who joined the evening and contributed to support the project.
