Slow Food Revolution: A New Culture for Eating and Living

Carlo Petrini and Gigi Padovani, Rizzoli

With its campaign against the uniformity and compromised quality of industrialized food, Slow Food works to preserve dying culinary traditions, conserve natural biodiversity and protect fading agricultural practices threatened in this age of mass consumerism. In Slow Food Revolution, the reader is taken on a gastronomic journey through the practices and traditions of the world's ethnic cuisines - from the artisanal cheeses of Italy to the pepper of Malaysia and the native American turkey. It includes testimonies from Slow Food representatives such as Alice Waters of Chez Panisse, illustrating exactly what they are doing and what still needs to be done to preserve them.
