Now, imagine this: it’s your lunch break at work, you grab something on the go and get quickly to your workplace still chewing the last bits. If I’d ask you what was in your ham and cheese sandwich besides ham and cheese, would you remember?

Now a different scenario – you eat your quinoa salad with roasted veggies that you bought at the farmer’s market on the weekend and you can even remember the smile of the guy telling you that he picked those tomatoes himself the day before. And it tastes better than anything else and your mind is already somewhere in the world filled with smells of ripe tomatoes and fresh basil. But wait! Your lunch break is over!!!

Today on the show  we’ll do everything to slow you down as we are talking about the Slow Food movement.

Our guests have slowly made their way to our studio and are ready to shed light on how slow is slow food. We have Kendall Gustavson, Christina Baudoins, Mauro Vescera and Carmelo Sortino.
