Slow Food  - Defence of Biodiversity.
Blue Mountains Slow Food is part of the International  Slow Food non-profit, eco-gastronomic member-supported organization that was founded in 1989 to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people's dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.
The Slow Food Movement creates Convivia  which organise tastings, dinners, food tourism, cooking courses, fairs, markets and other Slow Food Programs. 
More than 800 Convivia are active in 50 countries.  Slow Food has taken off in Australia in recent years and there are a number of convivia around the country with every state and territory represented:
Other Local Conviviums are Slow Food Bathurst and Slow Food Orange.
Slow Food works to defend biodiversity in our food supply, spread taste education and connect producers of excellent foods with co-producers through their events and other initiatives that showcase products of excellent gastronomic quality and to offer discerning consumers the opportunity to meet producers.

Slow Food  believes the enjoyment of excellent food and drink should be combined with efforts to save the countless traditional grains, vegetables, fruits, animal breeds and food products that are disappearing due to the prevalence of convenience food and industrial agribusiness. Through the Ark of Taste and Presidia project (supported by the Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity) and Terra Madre, Slow Food seeks to protect our invaluable food heritage.
