How many salami does it take to save the planet?
A hell of a lot and before we attended the amazing experience that was Salon Gusto/Terra Madre we didn’t know we needed any!
Inspiration and ActIon!
Sometimes in life you meet people that move and inspire you so much you realise anything is possible. Jamie Oliver said that a couple of days ago after getting to work with our heroes Carlo Petrini, the founder of the Slow Food Movement and Alice Waters, the matriarch of Edible Education. And he took the words right out of my mouth!
And his achievements are pretty amazing as well.
The last few days have been about vision and inspiration, having to face the big issues that are challenging us, listening to and meeting amazing people from all over the world who are taking a stand, and understanding that we can make change by a lot of committed people doing their little bit.
Of course we have been eating a whole lot of delicious food and drinking great wine! And in doing so supporting the families and communities that produce it.

So why so many salami?
Because the big issues like protecting biodiversity, feeding the planet, climate change, preserving culture and tradition, creating a fairer society have solutions that lie with the many not the few. And each individual salami speaks to all of this. And none of this lets the big players off the hook!
So after an adventure in Paris we will be home and are looking forward to sharing our experiences and what they mean for Slow Food Waitakere and a our broader communities.
We have some great plans and ideas!
