Publisher Comments:

Slow Food: Collected Thoughts on Taste, Tradition, and the Honest Pleasures of Food is an anthology for cooks, gourmets, and anyone who is passionate about food and its impact on our culture. Drawn from five years of the quarterly journal "Slow" (only recently available in America), this book includes more than 100 articles covering eclectic topics from "Falafel" to "Fat City." From the market at Ulan Bator in Mongolia to Slow Food Down Under, this book offers an armchair tour of the exotic and bizarre. You'll pass through Vietnam's Snake Tavern, enjoy the Post-Industrial Pint of Beer, and learn why the lascivious villain in Indian cinema always eats Tandoori Chicken. The articles are contributed by some of the world's top food writers.

Review:

"We applaud Slow Food's rejection of homogeneity and its celebration of the local, the quirky, the rare." Saveur Magazine

Review:

"Slow Food's straightforward message is hard to argue with: Foods and food preservation that have given culinary pleasure for decades (or much longer) should be treasured and preserved." The Washington Post
