Our Chelsea Green Authors : Slow Food Editore

Slow Food Editore

Slow Food Editore was founded in 1989 to counteract fast food and fast life, 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. It now has more than 80,000 members in 120 countries around the world.

    Slow Food Editore's Books

    Slow Wine 2014

    A Year in the Life of Italy’s Vineyards and Wines

    Slow Wine 2014 doesn’t simply select and review Italy’s finest bottles. It describes what’s in the glass, but it also tells you what’s behind it: namely the work, the aims, and the passion of producers; their bond with the land; and their choice of cultivation and cellar techniques—favoring the ones who implement ecologically sustainable winegrowing and winemaking practices.

    Slow Wine 2013

    A Year in the Life of Italy’s Vineyards and Wines

    For the second year running, Slow Food International offers an English language edition of annual wine guide, Slow Wine, which adopts a new approach to wine criticism and looks beyond what is in the glass.

    The Slow Food Dictionary to Italian Regional Cooking

    The handy and practical Slow Food Dictionary of Regional Italian Cooking tells you everything you ever wanted to know about Italian regional cooking as prepared in homes, osterias and restaurants. Packed with information about dishes and ingredients, tools and techniques, origins and trends, the book (which contains 40 color illustrations) is aimed primarily at food lovers but will also be of interest to anyone curious to find out more about Italy in general, its people, its language, its history and its culture.

    Terra Madre: Book and DVD Set

    More than twenty years ago, when Italian Carlo Petrini learned that McDonald’s wanted to erect its golden arches next to the Spanish Steps in Rome, he developed an impassioned response: he helped found the Slow Food movement. Since then, Slow Food has become a worldwide phenomenon, inspiring the likes of Alice Waters and Michael Pollan. Now, it’s time to take the work of changing the way people grow, distribute, and consume food to a new level.
