"It's Slooooow Good"

Sound familiar? I am dating myself, but that was the tagline for the Heinz ketchup advertising campaign that aired on TV during the 1970's.

Well, maybe that should be the slogan for the Slow Food Movement. I am familiar with the movement, but I didn't realize they even have a multilingual website devoted to the cause. Its home page proclaims:
Slow Food is a non-profit, eco-gastronomic member-supported organization that was founded in 1989 to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.
