Slow Food Hobart is our local Convivium of the organisation Slow Food International. This organisation originated in northern Italy in 1986 and now has more than 100,000 members in over 160 countries.
Slow Food is committed to protecting traditional & sustainable quality foods, primary ingredients, conserving methods of cultivation & processing & defending the biodiversity of cultivated & wild varieties.
Our philosophy encompasses food that is:
Good … healthy, tasty, flavoursome & fresh
Clean … produced without straining the earth’s resources, its ecosystems & its environments, & without harming human health
Fair … fair pay & conditions for all concerned-from production to commercialisation to consumption.
Ark of Taste
The Ark of Taste travels the world collecting small-scale quality productions that belong to the cultures, history and traditions of the entire planet: an extraordinary heritage of fruits, vegetables, animal breeds, cheeses, breads, sweets and cured meats…
Tasmanian Leatherwood Honey & the Belted Galloway Cattle Breed are on this list!
