Petrini founded Slow Food International three years later, renouncing not only Fast Food, but the overall pace of Fast Life. Issuing a manifesto, the movement called for the safeguarding of local economies, the rediscovery of authentic culinary tradition and a sustainable, ecologically aware consumerism.
At the table, Slow Food advocates a return to traditional recipes, locally grown foods and wines, and eating as a social event. Today the movement is active in over 50 countries with over 80,000 followers
Carlo Petrini, President of the International Slow Food Movement is a writer; he lives in Bra, Italy.
