Summary:

"In We Are What We Eat, Waters urges us to take up the mantle of slow food culture, the philosophy that has guided her life's work. Waters has come to see that it is the phenomenon of fast food culture, which prioritizes cheapness, availability, and speed, that is not only ruining our health but also dehumanizing the ways we live and relate to one another and poisoning our environment. Fortunately, there is a solution we can all participate in. Waters argues that by eating in a "slow food way," each of us--like the farm-to-table community that's grown around her restaurant and the world--can be empowered to prioritize and nurture a different kind of culture, one that champions values such as biodiversity, seasonality, stewardship, and pleasure in work." --Provided by publisher.
