Article from The Independent on Slow Food:
By Arifa Akbar
A pie-and-mash stall at Spitalfields market was yesterday enjoying a brisk trade from those craving a Sunday lunch that can be rustled up in under five minutes and consumed from cardboard cartons just as swiftly.
But only metres away, Aiman Saada's Syrian cuisine is drawing just as many customers who are happy to wait 20 minutes until their mixed mezzes, cous-cous dishes and coffees, made from organic ingredients and bought from local suppliers, are served up.
Mr Saada, who has been at on a quest to slow down harried lunchers at the market, near Liverpool Street in London, for 12 years, finally feels his work has not all been fruitless.
"The culture has dramatically changed and I have many more customers who eat 'slower' now. There was a time when people thought eating organic, fresh, local produce was just 'in fashion', but people have continued to eat this way and more have joined them. I serve people who work in the city and don't have much time to spare so they ask me to have their lunch ready for 12pm. On Sundays, a few customers buy their own organic meat at the market here and we cook it for them for lunch," he said.
Becky Heaton, 21, a student eating at the restaurant, said she abided by the dictim that 'less is more' where non-processed products were concerned: "I buy organic even though I'm a student because I would rather buy less of something that's more expensive if it means it tastes a lot better and is not full of chemicals."
