Spotlight on Japan as La Fontaine celebrates Slow Food movement

Leisure
Stephanie Sutcliffe


AN event that focuses on local food traditions and where ingredients are sourced will take place this weekend.

Hosted by La Fontaine Centre of Contemporary Art in co-ordination with Mizan Bahrain, the Slow Food movement aims to protect our unique biodiversity and traditions, while honouring the centuries of farming that has taken place.

In January, the focus is on Japan, where you will have the chance to participate in a Tea Ceremony by Badoor, a Bahraini who has an MA in Japanese Humanities and is an ITEI Tea Master and Tea Blending.

The tea ceremony dates back over 400 years and is a tradition that isn’t being adopted by the new generation.

There will also be stations selling delicious food related to the slow food concept.

It will take place on Saturday from 2pm to 9pm.
