Slow Food (2 videos)

  • 1 of 2

In 1986 when McDonald’s came to Rome, an Italian food lover named Carlo Petrini organized a movement in response to fast food. He called it Slow Food. It has now spread to over 150 countries. Slow Food celebrates local food, artisanal food, fair compensation for everyone involved in food production, and a return to the social joys of eating. This two part video series tells the story.

Slow Food, Part 1

The average meal in America comes from 1500 miles away. One tenet of the Slow Food movement is to eat locally. In this video you’ll see a Georgia restaurateur driving out into the countryside to buy fresh produce from a couple of organic farms. He talks with the farmer and pulls the beets and lettuce and onions right out of the ground. What could be fresher than that?

Interesting for the middle class and somewhat poor, but totally not economically viable for the truly poor.
