Slow Food Melbourne
Becoming the Head of Slow Food Melbourne has been an exciting and illuminating experience into the higher workings of the movement….there is a great deal going on! For those of you who have not heard of Slow Food this is an exerpt from the official website;
“Founded by Carlo Petrini in Italy in 1986, Slow Food is an international association that promotes food and wine culture, but also defends food and agricultural biodiversity worldwide.
It opposes the standardisation of taste, defends the need for consumer information, protects cultural identities tied to food and gastronomic traditions, safeguards foods and cultivation and processing techniques inherited from tradition and defend domestic and wild animal and vegetable species.
Slow Food boasts 83,000 members worldwide and offices in Italy, Germany, Switzerland, the USA, France, Japan, and Great Britain.
The network of Slow Food members is organized into local groups—Condotte in Italy and Convivia elsewhere in the world—which, coordinated by leaders, periodically organize courses, tastings, dinners and food and wine tourism, as well as promoting campaigns launched by the international association at a local level. More than 800 Convivia are active in 50 countries.”
Melbourne is the largest convivium in the world which is a clear reflection of our love and passion for food.
