Slow food

The Slow Food movement began in 1986 as a protest against fast food – in particular, the opening of a McDonald’s in Rome. The father of the movement, Carlo Petrini, was determined to wage an intellectual war against fast food and the rushed lifestyle that corresponds with this way of eating.

Slow Food is necessarily regional, promoting and protecting local produce. Its aim: “To counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how food choices affect the rest of the world.”
