Abstract:

"Where does chocolate come from, and what makes one cacao different from another? Who still produces traditional honey meads, one of mankind's oldest alcoholic beverages? Why do ancient European black pig breeds risk extinction?" "The stories of Slow Food's 65 International Presidia projects describe a world of traditional food that encompasses rare breeds and fruit and vegetable varieties, as well as handcrafted products like cheese, cured sausage and wine. These foods have been selected.

As International Presidia, Slow Food's projects that define, defend, and promote our gastronomic heritage. A World of Presidia is not just about the Presidia products, but also recounts the stories of the men and women who safeguard them - the curators of our world's rich agricultural history."--BOOK JACKET.
