Which kind fo food do we want for the future? The Slow Food movement, created in 1989 by Carlo Oetrini, has a clear answer to that question. Our food choices engage us still beyond fo simple cooking. They make us asking about our relationship with nature and producers. When he choose local products, resulting from eco-friendly productions, the consumer establish the virtuous circle of sustainable development. In this perspective, moreover, lies the real foundation of pleasure, sice producing in tune with nature is warrenty of an healtier product all along.
As a chef, I believe in those values too: before cooking there’s nature and producers are the best friends of cooks. This is the reason why, when in 1999 Jean Pierre Rous founded the Monaco-Riviera-Côte d’Azur Convivium, and offered me to participate, I accepted willingly.
Since its birth, the Convivium supports various actitities in order to promote genuine products. In particular it organizes some amazing taste-workshops, out-and-out thematic laboratories that allow us to discover and better know and consumers education on food safety. Finally, it plays a foundamental role in order to protect and promote the customs and traditions of this great mediterranean region.
