Slow Food

Slow Food U.S.A. is a non-profit, educational organization dedicated to supporting and celebrating the food traditions of North America. From the spice of Cajun cooking to the purity of the organic movement; from heirloom varieties of fruits and vegetables to handcrafted cheeses; these foods are part of our cultural identity. They reflect generations of devotion to the processes that yield the greatest achievements in taste. These foods, and those that depend on them, are at risk of succumbing to the effects of the fast life, visible through the industrialization and standardization of our food supply and degradation of our farmland. By reviving the pleasures of the table, and using our tastebuds as our guides, Slow Food U.S.A. believes that our food heritage can be saved.
