Italian Vending Machine Eatery Speeds Up Slow Food
It’s neither restaurant nor trattorìa, fast food nor snack bar: the north Italian town of Bologna is about to experience a novel kind of eatery. They’re calling it "Slotfood."
Traditional dishes made by professional restaurant chefs dispensed in plastic containers from a vending machine could be an alternative for those who don’t have the time or money to eat at a restaurant but want a nutritious hot meal rather than a burger or kebab.
But will slow food packaged as fast food take off? Maybe if "JakFox," the first slotfood venue, truly reflects the changing face of Italian society.
