“Kummer offers simple, homespun recipes, and proposes that through each one, the homecook can learn ‘how to imprint that taste on your own dishes.’ This is a noble and handsome effort.”

What Is Slow Food? It’s a philosophy, a way to farm, a way to cook, a way to live. Award-winning food writer Corby Kummer profiles numerous luminaries of the Slow Food movement. Their engaging stories are followed by more than 60 recipes from the world’s most innovative chefs for dishes showcasing handmade local specialties and traditional cooking methods. Beautifully illustrated with full-color photographs.
