Slow food

£3.99

Product description

A volume for all those passionate about food and its impact on our culture. Drawn from five years of "Slow", the quarterly journal of Slow Food International, which first appeared in 1996 when it was published in three editions: Italian, English and German. The 11th review in 1998 was also published in Spanish and French and thus "Slow" now speaks in five languages.;Slow Food has developed, since its inception in 1989, from a food ad wine society into an organization for the defence of vegetable, animal and cultural diversity. Hence the contents of this collection provide an overview of the topics "Slow" and the movement have addressed over the years: bio-diversity, defence of local food cultures, animal well-being, a stand against bio-technologies - these are some of the themes that have characterized Slow Foods's activities since its inauguration. Not that the simple pleasures of food, wine and conviviality have been forgotten. Those pleasures, and the advocacy of slowness as an indispensable tool for improving the quality of our lives, are also to be found among the pages of this book. reflect the growing concern among food-lovers that fast food is gradually destroying identity, taste, culture and pleasure.
