About This Item

New York: Columbia University Press, 2003. First American edition. Hardcover. Fine/fine. With a Foreward by Alice Waters (Executive chef and owner of Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, CA) Petrini decided to resist the steady march of fast food and all that it represented when he organized a protest, in 1986, against the building of a McDonald's near the Spanish Steps in Rome. Armed with bowls of penne, Petrini and his supporters spawned a phenomenon. Three years later he found the International Slow Food Movement, renouncing not only fast food, but also the overall pace of the "fast life" , a return to traditional recipes, locally grown foods and wines, and eating as a social event. Slow Food not only recalls the origins, first steps, and international expansion of the movement from the perspective of its founder, it is also a powerful expression of the organization's goal of engendering social reform through the transformation of our attitudes about food and eating. As Newsweek described it, the Slow Food Movement has now become the basis for an alternative to the American rat race, the inspiration for "a kinder and gentler capitalism." First Printing.
