Lunch or dinner in a Slow Food Restaurant

Traditional food and cultural identity

The Slow Food movement was born in Italy in the ’80s. It has now become a widespread international movement in 130 countries that emphasizes the pleasure of food and slowness, educates people about the authentic taste of food, and safeguards traditional products and biodiversity. Slow Food counters agribusiness’s efforts to standardize the taste of food, defending the need to inform and educate the consumer and protecting the cultural identities linked to traditional food and wine productions. In particular, Slow Food is active in preserving foods and the traditional techniques used to prepare foods. It also defends the biodiversity of cultivated and wild species. Slow Food is also committed to protecting places that, because of their historical, artistic, or social value are part of a culture’s gastronomic heritage. Slow Food is dedicated to educating younger generations about the need to establish a correct relationship with food and to fostering careful tourism that respects the environment.

Apulia Slow Travel embraces this philosophy by promoting a slow journey, which lets you indulge yourself in the colors, tastes, and scents of Apulian cuisine. You will plunge into the generous harvests of a luxurious countryside.

We will take you to the most authentic places, and we will introduce you to the Apulian restaurants selected by the Slow Food Movement.
