Slow Food

Taking the time to thoughtfully prepare, serve and partake of a meal can be one of life's great pleasures, but in our ever busier lives we are not only forgetting to enjoy our food, we are forgetting *how* to enjoy our food. The slow food movement isn't just about taking the time to stop and smell (eat?) the roses. It is also a strong base of support for maintaining biodiversity (the Incas had over 240 varieties of potatoes - how many have you seen in your local market?). The Slow Food Movement has grown to 80K+ members in the past 20 years, and has meetings and events all over the world. For more info on the U.S. branch, visit www.slowfoodusa.org.

Slow Food is a non-profit organization that promotes local food, knowledge of where our food comes from and how our choices affect the rest of the world. I can't put it any better, so this is what they say. "Slow Food is good, clean and fair food. We believe that the food we eat should taste good; that it should be produced in a clean way that does not harm the environment, animal welfare or our health; and that food producers should receive fair compensation for their work. We consider ourselves co-producers, not consumers, because by being informed about how our food is produced and actively supporting those who produce it, we become a part of and a partner in the production process."
