A fund-raiser for Slow Food Solano’s School Garden Grant Program, the mixer begins at 5:30 pm. A tour of the olive oil milling operation, the certified organic olive groves, vegetable and herb gardens begins at 6 pm. Guests will have the opportunity to learn about the history and traditions of olive oil milling, see the Italian mill where the oil is produced, sample freshly milled oil and learn more about using olive oil in your own kitchen.
Hors d’oeuvres prepared by Il Fiorello’s Chef Darren will be served and there will be a no-host wine bar.
Tickets are available through Nov. 14 on Brown Paper Tickets http://slowfoodsolano.brownpapertickets.com. The cost is $25 per person. Because Chef Darren needs to know how much food to prepare, tickets must be purchased by Monday, Nov. 14.
Il Fiorello’s visitor center also offers early holiday gift ideas with a unique selection of its award-winning oils and vinegars as well as other locally produced goods. It is located at 2625 Mankas Corner Road in Fairfield, just a couple miles north of the I-80 freeway at the Abernathy Road.
