Slow Food USA - Celebrate the Birth of a Movement
December 10, 2015 marks the signing of the Slow Food Manifesto in Paris in 1989. We celebrate our origins as a global movement each year with simultaneous local meetings, eatings and celebrations all over the planet on this one day. How will you commemorate the movement that began with the exclamation that "a firm defense of quiet material pleasure is the only way to oppose the folly of Fast Life?" Learn about events near and far. Read and recite the Manifesto to family, friends and neighbors. Thanks, NYT for the mention. Renew your commitment - on this day - to good, clean and fair food for all!
