"When the world's food traditions come together at Terra Madre, we catch a glimpse of what it would be like to exchange, learn, share and widen our lives in ways that are truly sustainable. In this fine manifesto, Carlo Petrini captures the essence of that world, and offers an agenda for change that is both necessary and deeply desirable."
—Raj Patel, author of The Value of Nothing
"Timely, essential, and full of joy!"
—Judy Wicks, Founder of White Dog Cafe
"Terra Madre is the way Slow Food has kept itself the international pioneer in food justice and good food, defending the power of the small against hte big and embracing the new. If you haven't been to this extraordinary gathering you'll want to go to the next--and Carlo Petrini will inspire you to find your own way to lead food into the future."
—Corby Kummer, Senior Editor, The Atlantic, and author of The Pleasures of Slow Food.
"No one writes about the intersection of eating and thinking quite like Carlo Petrini. A visionary equally mindful of past and present, he points readers toward a food system, and a way of life, that just might save us from ecological and cultural disaster. Persuasive, powerful, and--perhaps above all else--unapologetically honest, Petrini has given us a manual for a better, more delicious future. It's up to us to use it."
—Dan Barber, Chef, Blue Hill and Blue Hill Stone Barns
