Slow food is the complete opposite to quick and easy snacks that are mostly cooked in the deep fat fryer. There is even a Slow Food movement that promotes using the freshest of ingredients and a very traditional (slow) method of cooking. The result being more vitamins, healthy fats and much more flavoursome food.
Is this now the reason why so many of us are getting into the trend of growing our own small range of kitchen herbs? Perhaps.

No more afternoon trips to the supermarkt, just freshly picked herbs and vegetables from your very own garden.
