A compilation of articles from the Slow Food movement's magazine, Slow, this was a little slow-going. Even the articles about food (a favorite topic of mine) weren't particularly interesting, although they were informative. There was one article, a fictional piece about cannibalism, that I found very jarring amidst the rest of the essays.

This book made me think about the way I grew up... eating figs from the tree in our backyard, calling my mother at the hair salon at the age of 7 to ask how to make meat loaf because she wasn't home yet and someone had to feed the family. Food, Family, Friends.... there's nothing better in life.
