Fall Bean Feed: Nov 13 in West Berkeley


Join Slow Food East Bay, Hammerling Wines, and Donkey & Goat Winery for an afternoon of good eats, good wine, and good fun, all centered on BEANS!

The group will be shutting down Fifth Street between Camelia and Gilman for the afternoon of Sunday, November 13 so the bean curious can come to explore the world of heirloom legumes through the cultural food lenses of seven East Bay chefs:

  • Carlo Espinas of the Lede
  • Rocky Yazzie of Rocko’s Tacos
  • Dani of Sin Tu Carino
  • Sital of That Hausa Vegan
  • Enrique and Jazmin of Cocina del Corazon
  • Henry of Oramasama Dumplings.

Come see what the chefs will do with these six beans, which are featured in Slow Food USA’s 2022 Plant a Seed kit:

  • Santa Maria Pinquito
  • Rockwell
  • Four Corners Gold
  • Cherokee Trail of Tears
  • Arikara Yellow
  • Hank’s Xtra Special Baking Bean

There will be bean trivia, bean bag tosses, and opportunities to speak with representatives from seed saving and exchange organizations, community gardens, and urban farms, which is a great way to learn about the wide world of beans and their role in healthy climates and biodiversity.

There’s a sliding scale for tickets, so pick your price point. Admission covers food and activities, but please purchase those delicious glasses of vino from partners Hammerling Wines, Donkey & Goat Winery, and Broc Cellars separately.

Well behaved children and dogs are welcome!
