We all know that fast food is king all over the world, but have you ever wondered what exactly slow food is and why it matters? 

In our busy and exhausted era, Giselle Kennedy Lord from Slow Food USA stops by the podcast to explain why today it’s more important than ever to take the time to slow down and share a meal with other people. She shares why taking the time to cook and eat a proper meal has huge benefits for our physical and mental health and our planet’s biodiversity. 

We dig into the tangible benefits of food culture, why food has such a powerful place in our memories, and what exactly was Anthony Bourdain’s biggest contribution to our understanding of the world.
