Slow Food Italia

I support the The Slow Food movement. Experiencing the original traditional cooking of any nationality has always been a privilege for me, be it Italy, Africa, China or anywhere in between.

Slow Food Italia

“Was founded to counter the rise of fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and peoples dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.”

“Since it was founded more than 20 years ago, Slow Food has defended small-scale traditional food producers and raised awareness among consumers at the grassroots level. Its aim is to create a more responsible food system, based on the pleasure and sharing of good, clean and fair food.”

“Terra Madre network was launched by the Slow Food grass roots organization, and the intent is to provide small-scale farmers, breeders, fishers and food artisans whose approach to food production protects the environment and communities”

  1. We need to know where our food is coming from and support those that would grow it with care and love. It might cost more in time and money to do so but the benefits FAR outweigh the negatives and even though we might be middle aged penniless student hippies we would rather put our money into well grown, clean food sources and cook it well than waste our money on “fast” anything.
