Product Details

Explore this impassioned plea for a radical reconsideration of the way each and every one of us cooks and eats.
Book chef and author Alice Waters urges us to take up the mantle of slow food culture, the philosophy at the core of her life’s work. Discover how geography and seasonal fluctuations affect the menu ingredients, the dangers of pesticides, the plight of fieldworkers, and the social, economic, and environmental threats posed by industrial farming and food distribution. Understand how many of the serious problems we face in the world today—from illness, to social unrest, to economic disparity, and environmental degradation—are all, at their core, connected to food. Every decision we make about what we put in our mouths affects not only our bodies but also the world at large—our families, communities and environment. We have the power to choose what we eat, and we have the potential for individual and global transformation—simply by shifting our relationship to food. By eating in a “slow food way,” we are empowered to prioritize and nurture a different kind of culture, one that champions values such as biodiversity, seasonality, stewardship, and pleasure in work.
