Tickets Still Available: Come Eat Paella with Us and Support a Good Cause! (Menu Inside)

Civil Eats is thrilled to partner with Camino Restaurant in Oakland, California for our fundraiser on Monday night, part of the Eat Real Festival‘s Keeping It Real dinners. We hope to raise a bit of cash so to help keep our wheels turning over here — until now we haven’t recouped funds through advertising (and want to keep it that way) and have yet to get any steady funding, and in these economic times we’ve kept afloat simply with a strong will to inform you, our dear readers, about the issues facing our food system. Its all about the love, but we gotta eat!

Please, if you are in the Bay Area, come and join us at our fundraiser dinner on Monday evening, and enjoy great food and meet your loyal editors. We will talk shop and inform you about what we’re working on, and it will be an all around smashing time. Promise! And if you are not in the Bay Area, could you pass this along to your friends who are? We appreciate it!

In addition to delicious paella made in the Camino fireplace, and beautiful, local, organic summer produce and cheeses from Andante Dairy and Harley Farms, there will be organic and biodynamic wines. We wouldn’t think of serving real food supporters anything less delicious. Here is the menu as it is looking right now:

Boiled peanuts

Spicy pickles

*

Tomato, cucumber and eggplant salads with

almonds and flatbread

*

Chicken paella cooked in the fireplace

with fresh shellbeans, romano beans and scallions

We’ll bring the news to you.
