In this Dec. 8, 2012 photo, U.S. chef Kelsie Kerr pays for produce at a farm in Havana, Cuba. Kerr traveled to Cuba with the "Planting Seeds" delegation that held give-and-take seminars with chefs and culinary students about slow food. Cuba has a longstanding culture of organic farming by necessity. During the "Special Period" of the 1990s, many private urban plots popped up in Havana amid austerity after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Unlike in the United States, pesticide-free is largely the rule here rather than the exception, mostly due to a lack of supply. (AP Photo/Ramon Espinosa)
