Mr. Petrini is a vibrant force who has led the Slow Food movement to great international visibility. In 2004, he was named a “European Hero” by Time magazine and in January 2008 he was the only Italian to appear in The Guardian’s list of “50 People Who Could Save the World.” At Yale, he will present a talk on the international Slow Food movement and his new book, Terra Madre: Forging a New Global Network of Sustainable Food Communities.
At the core of Slow Food’s mission is the belief that food should taste good; that it should be produced in a clean way that does not harm the environment, animal welfare, or our health; and that food producers should receive fair compensation for their work.
Mr. Petrini’s visit is cosponsored by Yale’s School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, Yale’s Office of Sustainability, Yale Dining, and the Yale Sustainable Food Project.
