Rajinder's Remarkable Rasoi :: Lessons from My Mother's Village Kitchen:
Danny Heitman says it well:
"Not since the launch of Sputnik has U.S. education seemed so ripe for reform." Ripeness of reform for the rasa of teaching and learning, living and eating is here. The time has come to regenerate the classical concept of "school" rooted in the Latin schole, or leisure. The tragedy of the loss of leisure from schooling because of industrial fast food (and more) can finally be put aside, the cruel, sickening, hard lessons of the twentieth century having been learned.
It is the most realizable dream of the twenty-first century: the dream of Slow Food education. Instead of McDonald's or Burger King announcing the nine-billionth burger sold, we are building a world where schools and colleges announce the 250 millionth American savoring the nourishing Slow Food grown by local CSA farmers."
