Terra Madre : 1,600 food communities( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book describes 1,600 Food Communities in 150 countries: from the Hatahata fishermen of Kitaura in Japan, to the raisin producers of Herat in Afghanistan; from Ethiopian forest coffee pickers to Mexican vanilla growers. Farmers, shepherds, fishermen, pork butchers, vine-dressers ... All people who embody a new idea of agriculture based on taste quality, sustainability and social justice; all they demand is fertile soil, clean seas, sufficient water and the free circulation of information, knowledge and produce. Of these communities, 300 are Slow Food Presidia, developed worldwide to save food products in real danger of extinction"--Page 4 of cover

Slow wine : a year in the life of Italy's vineyards and wines( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Slow wine 2012 is an innovative overview of the Italian wine world, which lists the country's finest bottles in terms of aroma and taste, sense of terroir and value for money. But it also boldly ventures into previously unexplored territory, judging wineries according to their environmental sensitivity and eco-sustainable practices. To achieve this ambitious target, more than 200 contributors visited the vineyards and cellars of more than 2,000 wineries and made the acquaintance of the producers themselves. The book describes 2,500 labels, all pieces of the Italian winemaking mosaic. With the help of 20 maps, it will take you on an exciting journey through the wine districts and denominations of Italy's 20 regions."--Page 4 of cover
