Slow Food is a movement that was created in 1989 as a response to the growing chaos of the non-stop society. Present in over 150 countries, with over one hundred thousand members, Slow Food works to impact agricultural, gastronomic and food production practices, encouraging a concept of food quality that is based on three points:
Clean – production techniques that do not harm the environment or people’s health;
Fair – consumers are sold the food at accessible prices, and the small producers receive fair payment.
If you would like to enjoy good and healthy food that respects Slow Food’s principles, here are some of the restaurants you can visit during your stay in Barcelona:
