Linking the pleasure of good food with a commitment to the community and the environment, Slow Food is a politically conscious organisation driven by the belief that everyone has a right to ‘good, clean and fair’ food.
“Slow Food stands at the crossroads of ecology and gastronomy, ethics and pleasure. It opposes the standardization of taste and culture, and the unrestrained power of the food industry multinationals and industrial agriculture. We believe that everyone has a fundamental right to the pleasure of good food and consequently the responsibility to protect the heritage of food, tradition and culture that make this pleasure possible. Our association believes in the concept of neo-gastronomy – recognition of the strong connections between plate, planet, people and culture.”
Says it all!
