“Slow food is good food”

The “slow food” movement (the opposite of “fast food") was founded in Italy in 1986. The movement encourages regional cuisines and locally grown food.

The saying “slow food is good food” has been cited in print since at least 2005.


Wikipedia: Slow Food
Slow Food is an international movement founded by Carlo Petrini in 1986. Promoted as an alternative to fast food, it strives to preserve traditional and regional cuisine and encourages farming of plants, seeds and livestock characteristic of the local ecosystem. It was the first established part of the broader Slow movement. The movement has since expanded globally to over 100,000 members in 132 countries. Its goals of sustainable foods and promotion of local small businesses are paralleled by a political agenda directed against globalization of agricultural products.

Slow Food is Good Food

Crixa Cakes products are the result of older traditions of baking and food preparation which rely on quality ingredients and a slower hand-made process.

That’s why we are pleased that the folks at Slow Food chose to include us in the new Slow Food Guide to San Francisco and the Bay Area published by Chelsea Green Publishing, December 2005.

Slow Food is Good Food
There’s something about slow-simmered food that makes it taste soo good. Combine everything in a pot and 6 hours later - whala - a juicy, flavorful hot meal’s ready to enjoy. I made brown rice instead of the egg noodles, added artichoke hearts and tossed together a green salad to round out the meal.

Whether it is for last minute guests, to culminate a hectic day, or something quick before the PTA meeting, you will find a crock-pot to be your new best friend.

A scrawled note on the side of the refrigerator door spelled out Kiele’s ideology: “Fast food is only fast. Slow food is good food. Please tell us if you are on a time budget because we serve good food here.”

Do you know where your food comes from? No, seriously; think about what you ate for dinner last night.  Can you tell me where the cattle that provided the beef for your hamburger was raised?  Do you know the name of the farm that grew the potatoes used to make your French fries or the bakery that made the bun?
