For those who thought that the Slow Food movement means long-cooked casseroles or overnight smouldering barbeque pits, you are not wrong, but there is so much more to the story. We love and support slow made food that takes a lovingly long time to grow, cook and eat, but Slow Food also has a spirit. “Good, clean and fair food for all”: these are the principles on which the Slow Food movement was founded in 1986 on the Spanish Steps in Rome, Italy, by Carlo Petrini as a protest to the opening of a McDonald’s. In the simplest sense Slow Food is the opposite of Fast Food.
