An intresting read about how/if at all the slow food and whole food movements are (choose one or more)

a: Saving the world

These movements are a good example of the saying that the road to hell is paved with good intentions...

If anybody wants to read about a food movement and pioneer that really did something to save the world, http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/14/busin ... rlaug.html is a good place to start

And let us not forget George Washington Carver and what we often think of as the humble peanut.

I joined Slow Food UK at the start of last year.

After a year studded with internal dispute, personal agendas/ambition and disrespect of the membership, my membership lapsed.

I remain a believer in the concept, but will remain outside the organisation for the foreseeable future.
