Slow Food (page 2 of 2)

Slowing Down ... a Little

I get a kick out of the Food Network's 30-Minute Meals television show. The enthusiastic host cooks a meal from start to finish during the half-hour show, dispelling the myth that healthful, tasty food takes a long time to prepare. Maybe this is America's version of Slow Food. Not exactly slow, but not quite so fast, either.

With the season's harvest at its peak right now, give "slow food" a try. By enjoying local foods at their freshest and most nutritious, you'll be tapping into a trend that's both new and thousands of years old.
