Meet our Committee
Peter became involved in food when working in outside catering during a gap year. Like many people, he started cooking as a student and gradually developed this skill during a career unrelated to food. He now cooks from scratch most days in a variety of cuisines, and is interested in sustainable food systems and the wider politics of food. He joined the Slow Food movement because it reflects his views about the importance of good quality, tasty food from sustainable sources, and because it actively promotes these values.
Rossella, originally from Italy, has been residing in Edinburgh for the past decade, where she has gained a reputation as a dedicated foodie and cultural enthusiast. Driven by her love for all things culinary, Rossella founded her own food and culture magazine, where she focuses on promoting small businesses, creatives, and sharing the culture of pasta on different levels.
Rossella's passion for food, drink, and her long experience in the hospitality sector has led her to join the Slow Food Edinburgh committee, where she aims to promote the mission of slow food through marketing and communications. She is committed to making a positive contribution to the Slow Food Edinburgh community, and her dedication to support local businesses, sustainable food and heritage is what pushes her to be part of this inspiring community.
Adela works as a human rights campaigner for a living and is an advocate of good, clean, fair food for life. Brought up with home-cooked meals and seasonal ingredients grown by both her grandmother on an allotment and by her parents on a veggie patch behind the building where they were living, conviviality, commitment to real food, supporting sustainable small farming are values deeply rooted in her. Involved with the Slow Food movement since 2012, she's been the Slow Food Iași Convivium Leader for 6 years while living in Romania. Since she's moved to Scotland, she continues her pursuit of local gastronomy and culinary heritage while constantly learning how our food choices shape us as individuals, as communities, as constants of change within a globalized world.
