Slow Food has chosen Terra Madre Salone del Gusto to launch a major fundraising campaign to protect biodiversity. It has done so in partnership with an outstanding ‘travelling companion’, the Scuola Holden creative writing school in Turin.
Walking into the Egyptian Museum under the watchful gaze of the pharaohs, the first thing you’ll notice is a series of photographs. The collection depicts a number of specialty foodstuffs: 34 in fact, which are all part of the Egyptian Slow Food Ark of Taste. Shot by Ahmed Elabd of Ma7sool Production, they combine to form an exhibition entitled From Sinai Wormwood to Farasheeh Bread: The Ark of Taste in Egypt.
At Terra Madre Salone del Gusto, September 22 to 26 in Turin, Italy, Slow Food presents a new project promoting a new way of traveling. Slow Food Travel provides a wealth of knowledge and experience from Slow Food and the Terra Madre network to create a new model for tourism.
