Sorry for the late notice, don't leave it too late to book in!

Hope to see you there,
Kind Regards

Hi Anon. If you google Slow Food Australia you can read all about the slow food movement, but basically it's about a movement which was started to counteract the fast food industry. Slow food means you are preparing your food the way it used to be made - slowly, lovingly and carefully with all steps taken in the process as opposed to the way most people eat these days: "I'm hungry, so I'll stop in at Mackers now".
The meal at Cable Station sounds fabulous, and I'm tempted to travel up. Will have to see.
I recommend you make the effort to attend - you won't be sorry, and the Cable Station is a great venue, with Charlotte being a wonderful host and general all-round hospitality person. She worked at one of Rick Steins restaurants last year for about 4 or 5 months, just because she wanted to learn the specifics of how he operated. That's someone who is a devoted hospitality person, I reckon!
