Nothing slow about running around like a (heritage, free-range) chicken with your head cut off looking for last minute gift ideas. Our intern Leo has a nice, short list of “Sustainable Santa” ideas over on the Slow Food on Campus blog, and right here, a few more ideas.
Books: Check out Jeff Roberts’ Atlas of American Artisan Cheese, the first comprehensive guide to the artisan cheese movement. Or an oldie but goodie, Gary Nabhan’s Coming Home to Eat: The Pleasures and Politics of Local Foods.
Food: Consider ordering something from Native Harvest, the online catalog of the White Earth Land Recovery Project in Minnesota. Here you can buy an assortment of Manoomin Wild rice products, in addition to coffee, honeys, hominy, and more.
Magazine: Order someone a subscription to GOOD, “the magazine for people who give a damn.” When you order, the entirety of your subscription money goes to one of the 12 selected charity partners–and you get to choose which one! Guess who is one of the 12 partners this year…? Slow Food USA.
