If you haven't heard about the Slow Food movement, read more here. Carlo Petrini started Slow Food in 1986 to promote food which is "good, clean, and fair" according to Slow Food. The organization has grown to over 80,000 members around the world today. I was excited to meet Carlo at a recent event celebrating Italian Food at the UN in New York City. He was in town from Italy with some of Italy's top chefs. As you can imagine there was delicious food and wine everywhere. Fresh parmesan cheese, risotto, and chocolate treats. I gave the jovial chefs and Carlos a little stash of sweetriot too!
