Not Gonna Happen

Slow Food is an international movement that urges people to find time for meals made from scratch.

I'm picturing a big group of Martha Stewart's with WAY too much time on their hands.

Not gonna happen in this girl's life for quite some time.

You Said

I enjoy cooking from scratch and don't have the time to do it nearly as often as I'd like.

A lot of it has to do with retaining the meaning of some of the descriptions of food. For example, you're not supposed to call all sparking wines "Champagne," only the ones that come from that part of France. So it erodes the value of the name when people are simplistic and ignorant about what they are drinking. Plus, the foods they discuss, like heirloom tomatoes and microbrewed beer, just taste better.

By the way, don't knock a three-and-a-half-hour dinner until you've tried it. It may be difficult to do in the US, since everyone has his/her own frantic schedule, but there is really no greater pleasure in the world. Good food, good fellowship, a little wine to relax everyone, ideally a nice table outside on a warm night.... there is a lot to be said for it. It's probably even more rewarding when you make it yourself, but I am just not a talented enough cook to stay at it for that long.
