Josh Viertel and Ruth Reichl: Slow Food on Less Money

podcast-icon.jpgSlow Food USA president Josh Viertel and Ruth Reichl, editor-in-chief of Gourmet, appeared recently on Leonard Lopate’s WNYC show to discuss the importance of sustainable agriculture and how good, clean, and fair food can be affordable and accessible. They also talk about how they became aware of Slow Food as a social movement, how the movement has grown in the United States, and about our heritage as a nation of farmers. They also take on Slow Food’s “elitist” reputation and why good, clean, and fair food can and should be considered a right that we fight for, not a privilege for only few to enjoy. (~32 minutes)
