Slow Food Nation will change the way you think about food! Slow Food founder Carlo Petrini describes how we can take back control of our food by outlining three central principles: food must be good (healthful and delicious); it must be clean (produced sustainably in ways that respect the environment), and it must be fair (produced with respect for social justice). Petrini’s philosophy includes teaching gastronomy—the science of all knowledge revolving around food—in our schools. Instead of consumers, today we should become co-producers, active participants in the production of our food.
Carlo Petrini will also help launch a year-long campaign that will culminate in the event Slow Food Nation, in San Francisco in May 2008. Slow Food Nation's mission is to change America's consciousness of how food is produced and distributed. The event will be a four-day eco-gastronomic gathering that will feature tastings, demonstrations, lectures, an international film festival and a market of artisanal American foods.
Join Carlo Petrini at a Slow Food Nation book event this May! We hope to see you at one of the below events. Books will be sold at all events.
