Slow Food Maui and it’s prospective members got the “royal treatment” last evening as Flatbread in Paia hosted our group around the large community table which brought together a pool of wonderfully talented individuals that will help populate our various committees. The group dined on salads, a variety of brick oven pizzas , courtesy of Jenna of Flatbread, and decadent desserts of gelato and cupcakes, courtesy of Melissa of Penguini in Paia.
A point echoed throughout the meeting was that the committees will be the driving force behind the organization and will lead our group out into the Maui community.
Our committees are:
Education Committee: Charlene Kauhane
Chef/Restaurant Committee: Shannon Wianecki
