Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“Petrini builds his case against fast food and offers ways to bring back the balance between nature and our table.” ~Bon Appetit

“The book is an earthly, through treatise on eating well.” ~Whole Living

“In Slow Food Nation, Petrini demonstrates the ultimate mission of the Slow Food Movement by exposing the dangers of the food industry, which include genetically modified organisms, chemicals, and pesticides.” ~WholeFoods Magazine

Présentation de l'éditeur

By now most of us are aware of the threats looming in the food world. The best-selling Fast Food Nation and other recent books have alerted us to such dangers as genetically modified organisms, food-borne diseases, and industrial farming. Now it is time for answers, and Slow Food Nation steps up to the challenge. Here the charismatic leader of the Slow Food movement, Carlo Petrini, outlines many different routes by which we may take back control of our food. The three central principles of the Slow Food plan are these: food must be sustainably produced in ways that are sensitive to the environment, those who produce the food must be fairly treated, and the food must be healthful and delicious. In his travels around the world as ambassador for Slow Food, Petrini has witnessed firsthand the many ways that native peoples are feeding themselves without making use of the harmful methods of the industrial complex. He relates the wisdom to be gleaned from local cultures in such varied places as Mongolia, Chiapas, Sri Lanka, and Puglia. Amidst our crisis, it is critical that Americans look for insight from other cultures around the world and begin to build a new and better way of eating in our communities here.

HASH(0x95fe5198) étoiles sur 5 Slow Food: Rich in Character, Intelligence, and Hope 28 septembre 2007
Par Michael Tiemann - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Carlo Petrini gave a lecture at NCSU in Raleigh earlier this year. His talk was in Italian, but his ideas were universal: if we want happiness and peace, we're going to have to change the way we eat.

The book is fantastic. It is beautifully written, powerful, and balances scientific data and understanding with cultural histories and sensible aestheics. His proposal of a new branch of science, gastronomy, is as revolutionary as Freud's proposal to study the human psyche or David Kelley's efforts to study design as a science.

This book is The Inconvenient Truth for those who eat. But it is also a far more optimistic book, for the solution to the problem of industrial agriculture is to seek out good food, to meet and learn about the farms and farmers who grow it, and the reward is pleasure.

The Introduction by Alice Waters is, like the food at Chez Panisse, a sensual as well as a sensible delight.

This is a great book to buy, read, and then share with others, all around the world.

HASH(0x95fe51ec) étoiles sur 5 Marvellous introduction to the Slow Food movement 8 décembre 2007
Par M. Dumont Valli - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
More than a reaction to Fast Food's arrival in Italy, Slow Food
has evolved into a global movement encompassing many different actions to improve what we all taste and eat.
It's not about eating well in the privileged, Michelin-starred table sense. It's about recognizing everyone's barriers to eating well and judging the quality of our food on three levels, asking whether it is good, clean and fair. (The book's original title is just that: Buono, pulito e Giusto).
The movement's founder wrote this book to set out a new definition of gastronomy, enumerating some of the issues facing our food supply and helping to turn a thinking eater to positive action.
Beautifully translated, Slow Food Nation is a cogent & readable introduction to what Slow Food is about. Highly recommended!

HASH(0x95fe54c8) étoiles sur 5 Slow Food's Petrini continues to evolve 28 décembre 2007
Par Craig C. Johnson - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Carlo Petrini has been attempting to preserve a more traditional view of food for a long time, this book lays out his current thinking in a clear and concise layering of understanding food in culture (gastronomy), understanding quality (good, clean, fair food), and the tools to put these ideas to work in the world going forward.
As we reconstitute a food culture based on transparency and quality in the USA and hopefully across the globe, this book provides key ideas related to respect for diversity of food products, respect for food in culture, and respect for the work associated with food that can serve to guide us. This book made me think and laugh, and I recommend it highly.

HASH(0x95fe59f0) étoiles sur 5 Beautiful Book 4 juin 2011
Par Charles Martell - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This is simply a beautiful book. It is motivational. It is deep. It is intelligent. It is profound. I am glad I have read it. It is a simple matter really. If you care about people, animals, plants, food, the earth; what is called the world then you will enjoy this book and will find enrichment and satisfaction. If on the other hand you choose to live in ignorance and oblivion and prefer to act as an individual pursuing only ones selfish interests and to consume indiscriminately without concern or knowledge then you need this book but will most likely find a way to refute it. The translation is excellent. This is not a difficult read for a well-formed mind and I suspect you will enjoy Petrini's style. I particulary enjoyed his diary insights about the experiences of his life that gives us an acoount of others trying to do good. Read this book you will be rewarded.

HASH(0x95fe5a08) étoiles sur 5 Slow Food Can Change the World 5 janvier 2010
Par Pam Warren's Picks - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
A great book for anyone wanting to know about the 20 year old revolution of slow food that began in Italy...buying locally grown and produced foods to provide the healthiest foods for our bodies and to take care of our planet as well. If you're into agricultural and ecological sustainability or your not, but you either want to be a part of it or are curious about it...this book is the one to start with. An easy read and highly recommended.
