Slow Food Nation's Come to the Table: The Slow Food Way of Living


by Alice L. Waters and Katrina Heron

     Where do great meals begin? Come to the Table brings you straight to the source of wonderful flavors, beauty, abundance, and pride of place—the small farms of California and the people who tend them season after season.

     Alice Waters, the celebrated chef and food activist, introduces a remarkable group of resilient fresh-food artisans who are committed to keeping our food supply delicious, diverse, and safe—for humans and the planet.

     Meet the folks down on the farm and learn firsthand about the back-to-the-future small-farm economy that’s gaining strength across America.

Discover new tastes and memorable traditions. Explore local flavors, wit, and wisdom along with the universal values of a food system that is "good, clean, and fair." Recreate a range of sumptuous yet simple meals with the farmers’ own family recipes—including breakfast crostata and fresh-fruit jams, stuffed artichokes and black-eyed peas, chile relleno casseroles, pulled pork, and cheesecake.

     Sustainable food is real food. Come to the table, and help yourself!
