Slow Food: A global, grassroots movement towards sustainability in agriculture
There is always something to be said for preserving tradition. Cultural customs often give us identity, linking us to our roots and breathing life into our heritage. Food, especially, provides this connection that spans the generations. Families pass down secret recipes to children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Baristas at Cafe Venetia continue to use the same precise preparation methods performed by Venetian baristas in order to create their espressos, cappuccinos and cremini.
Yet while many recipes should stay the same, our current agricultural system calls for changes in where we obtain our ingredients from. Enter the Slow Food movement, which is based upon preserving tradition while supporting local agriculture and promoting sustainability. According to the movement's website, Slow Food was founded to counteract "the disappearance of local food traditions and people's dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world."
