An Open Letter to Alice

2008_07_gardensmall.jpgEd Levine is pleased that San Francisco is so pleased about the Slow Food festivities, but it's not enough, dammit: "I have always found the Slow Food movement here in the U.S. to be more about nonspecific soaring rhetoric and less about specific actions we can all take that actually further the cause of slow food in America. Eating delicious, sustainable, artisanal foods and calling attention to those foods is laudable, but it is not enough. Because right now in America there are hundreds of artisanal food purveyors under siege ... Irreplaceable American artisanal food purveyors, some more than a hundred years old, are closing down their shops and restaurants ... And yet for some reason, the Slow Food movement has not adopted this issue as its own." [SE]
