The Slow Food Youth Network

The Slow Food Youth Network is celebrating food culture and local tastes and reducing food waste while championing sustainability and biodiversity in their communities and around the world.

The SFYN connects the up-and-coming generation of passionate Slow Food members around the globe. Spurred by extra energy, innovative ideas and solutions that uphold the Slow Food philosophy are shared. While upholding the Slow Food principle that food should be good, clean and fair for all, SFYN leaders are inspiring change in how we produce and consume our food on the local and global levels. The Youth Network extends its reach across the globe through community-based events like Disco Soup celebrations, Eat-Ins, and Food Film Festivals.

SFYN around the world

Students from the University of Gastronomic Sciences and other universities together with young farmers, fishers, artisans, chefs and activists launched the SFYN in 2007. Today the network is represented in many countries – from South Korea to France, the USA and Mexico.

The Only Pickle Formula You’ll Need

The Only Pickle Formula You’ll Need

It’s fall, which means I have pumpkins and pickles on my mind. The pumpkins are self-explanatory, but the pickles? Most people think of summer as the prime time to preserve the season’s bounty, but I personally like my summer produce fresh and my fall produce tangy and pickled. But the truth is, you can pickle all year round! It’s an easy way to reduce food waste – in fact, you can even pickle “food waste” itself like watermelon rinds and citrus peels.
