Philosophically, Slow Food is rooted in a notion of consumers’ rights; this mirrors an understanding of how citizenship, as embedded within political processes and political action theory, has shifted from the “citizen” as participant, to “citizen” as producer, to “citizen” as consumer (iVliller, 1995). This focus belies an underlying leitmotif of slow food in general, that the embattled (and perhaps embittered) citizen eater-as-consumer has lost effective rights to participate in a community of gastronomic true choice due to the hegemonic control of the food industry. Slow Food participants frequently speak of the effort to find, purchase, and use comestibles not controlled by large, non-local or non-sustainable food concerns.
Slow food as we know it!
Participation in Slow food is perceived by members to be an example of direct resistance to the “tyranny of the market” a la Pierre Bourdieu (Rourdieu, 1999), although the voids they use are more emblematic of a harried chef or hostess searching for ideal and elite ingredients than those of the academic sensibilities of French political theorists. Indeed, it can be argued that the name alone signals this opposition and perceived resistance to that which is manufactured and pre-prepared. However, the identity of assaulted eater relates to what is on the plate, as well as the processes that brought the meal to the table.
There is a deep and abiding sense within members’ discourse that the land is being destroyed by industrial farming practices, that small scale food production is being driven out of business, that food folkways are disappearing and that the universe of choice in taste is being steadily reduced by national and international-level globalization processes that create homogenous products, propose homogenous lives and livelihoods, and define the human endeavor as a process of globalized mass culture. In these models, to support Slow Food is to perform 21st-century consumption as a citizen whose sale political power seems to be active resistance to the onslaught of processed, harmony corporate food homogeneity.
