Culinary Arts Institute Green Technology SLOW FOOD ESSAY The Slow Food Essay project is designed to challenge students’ inquiry and ability in metacognitive thinking correlating to Permaculture and ways to integrate Green Technology with upcoming projects within The CAI Garden. Students are expected to research and compare some of the contributions that spearheaded from Slow Foods Manifesto. The Project is a comparison to the peak oil in Cuba and the Slow Food manifesto that was created by a Fast Food Chain attempting to establish market in a tourist area in Italy. What I envision within this project is for students to write their own interpretation after reading the material and analyzing what really happened within the two different scenarios, in addition to the affects experienced by the citizen with in their respected areas and beyond its borders. Students are encouraged to use the Learning Resources Center (LRC) to complete assigned project in a timely manner.
