Last week was the AGM for Slow Food in Scotland.
Slow Food is a global, grassroots movement with thousands of members around the world that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment. It was founded in 1989 in Italy.
If you aren’t members, and need a reason to take part, think of it simply as a way to make changes in the world that will eventually help all communities to achieve good, clean fair food.
Many think of Slow Food as a crazy Italian organisation that takes long leisurely lunches! In fact, it is an international organisation represented in 150 countries around the world.
Slow Food’s agenda is to change the way we grow, produce and preserve the authenticity of our food – and most importantly, educate communities around the world how to become sustainable. I’ve been a member of Slow Food for 8 years now, but a supporter for many years before that.
Slow Food brings to my mind the choices that are best for the environment, best for our communities, best for animal welfare, best for heritage and best for taste. In short, it’s all about Love Happy Food – good food enjoyed with our friends and families.
Given all of this, I am absolutely thrilled that the Slow Food organisation has named me as their first female chef in the Chef Alliance. Thank you so much everyone at Slow Food.
