Item description for Terra Madre: 1600 Food Communities by Slow Food Editore...
This book describes 1,600 Food Communities in 150 countries: from the hatahata fishermen of Kitaura in Japan to the raisin producers of Herat in Afghanistan; from Ethiopian forest coffee pickers to Mexican vanilla growers. Farmers, shepherds, fishermen, pork butchers, vine-dressers...all people who embody a new idea of agriculture based on taste quality, sustainability and social justice. All they demand is fertile soil, clean seas, sufficient water and the free circulation of information, knowledge and produce. Of these communities, 300 are Slow Food Presidia, developed worldwide to save food products in real danger of extinction.
