What is Salone del Gusto and Terra Madre
“Salone Internazionale del Gusto” (= The International Taste Exhibition) is undoubtedly one of the most important events ever, speaking of quality food. Nowadays there are so many events to know about food and beverages, but this one is different. It’s only the one able to gather big and small producers all together. Salone del Gusto is big because it has an international notoriety, and small because you can really find good, clean and fair food producers. Terra Madre is the brother event focused on telling you the colorful stories of foods from all around the world
Why are they so important?
2014 has been declared by the United Nations to be the “International Year of Family Farming”. Today the world is facing scarring and complex global issues. We don’t need to enlist here what we are talking about. Those issues are so difficult to face that sometimes we don’t even know what we should do as individuals. We want to do something, but it may be difficult to make the right choices in our daily life or simply while we do the grocery shopping: is this food healthy? Are they respecting the workers and the nature behind it?
The Slow Food network take actions starting from a strong and opposite approach compared to the mainstream, indeed a slow approach. Take your time and good things will happen. This year there are several interesting focusses and activities at Salone del Gusto such as Food Biodiversity, Family Farming, cooking classes and much more. We’ll be there with our chocolate producuts and with some new things we are preparing for the event.
We can’t wait!
