Food and taste education

It all starts with a taste

Slow Food believes that by understanding where our food comes from, how it was produced and by whom, adults and children can learn how to combine pleasure and responsibility in daily choices and appreciate the cultural and social importance of food.

Our education projects differ from most food education as they are based on the idea that food means pleasure, culture and conviviality. Our education initiatives are organized for varied audiences of children and adults, teachers, Slow Food members and the general public, and form an integral part of Slow Food events and campaigns.

They take many different forms: school gardens, guided tastings, farm visits, knowledge exchange between generations, practical workshops and meals with producers. In addition to this, Slow Food International launched the University of Gastronomic Sciences in 2004 to offer a holistic approach to food academia.
