“I believe that he who sows utopia will reap reality. ”
Carlo Petrini, Slow Food Nation: Why Our Food Should Be Good, Clean, and Fair

“If food was no longer obliged to make intercontinental journeys, but stayed part of a system in which it can be consumed over short distances, we would save a lot of energy and carbon dioxide emissions. And just think of what we would save in ecological terms without long-distance transportation, refrigeration, and packaging--which ends up on the garbage dump anyway--and storage, which steals time, space, and vast portions of nature and beauty.”
Carlo Petrini, Terra Madre: Forging a New Global Network of Sustainable Food Communities

“A gastronome who isn’t an environmentalist is just stupid, and an environmentalist who isn’t a gastronome is just sad.”
Carlo Petrini
