​Slow food is an international movement that comes from Italy, its goal being the preservation of the traditional and regional cuisine and is an alternative to fast food. It starts with sustaining the local producers and buying local, fresh and tasty produce, taking time for cooking it, enjoying the food and last but not least, being more aware about the positive effects one can have when having this certain lifestyle.
