Mold, United Kingdom
Don't let a name like Mold put you off from enjoying the local cuisine, which is prepared according to cittaslow requirements. Mold is the first city in Wales to introduce cittaslow (slow food), a recent movement created as an antithesis to the fast-food industry that has taken over the Western world. Fresh ingredients from locally grown produce and livestock are the culinary emphasis for dishes prepared in Mold's slow-food establishments.
