For the Love of Food: Pour L’amour De La Cuisine

The Slow Food Movement began in the 1980s to preserve the culture of eating locally and combat the popularization of fast food. While eating farm-to-table has become a global phenomenon, nowhere is this passion for clean eating more apparent than in France, where generations have relied on locally grown foods. From family-owned farms and markets in the Laon and Lorraine countryside to beautiful restaurants in the heart of Paris, all the way back to a farm-to-fork eatery in Westchester, New York, this documentary explores the environmental and health benefits of eating clean, locally-grown goods, the value of family traditions, embracing culture and heritage through cooking, and, of course, the love of food.

In this documentary produced by Dr. Maria Luskay, Professor Lou Guarneri, and Pace University’s documentary film team, PaceDocs filmmakers spoke with farmers, chefs, and restaurateurs who have dedicated their lives to making slow food a reality in our fast-paced world.

In the process, they learned about the guiding principles of good, clean, and fair—and why that is a healthy recipe for a sustainable future.
