Slow Food Nation: Why Our Food Should Be Good, Clean, And Fair.

While best-selling books such as Fast Food Nation have alerted the public to dangers around genetically modified organisms, food-borne diseases and industrial farming, Slow Food Nation steps up to the challenge of proposing some answers. Slow Food president Carlo Petrini outlines various routes by which we may take back control of our food and introduces the central principles of the Slow Food approach – good, clean and fair. That is, food must be sustainably produced in a way that is healthy for the environment and people; those who produce the food must be fairly treated; and the food must be healthful and delicious. Petrini also draws on wisdom to be gleaned from local cultures in such varied places as Mongolia, Mexico, Sri Lanka, and Italy.
