Discover Slow Food
The Slow Food Movement began as a response to the industrialization of the food system, and the subsequent loss of food varieties and flavors. The movement began in 1986 in Italy and has moved around the globe. In 1990 there were about 200 varieties od artichokes in Italy: today only a dozen survive. The mission of the Slow Food movement is to educate consumers on land stewarship and ecologically sound food production; encourage cooking as a method of stengthening relationships between people; further the consumption of local, organic, and seasonal food; and create a collaborative, ecologically oriented community.
