Back to the product
It is the moment of gastronomy based on memory and environment; the moment of looking at our territory and our past - because we are what precedes us. It's time for gastronomy to return to its essence, to a pure cooking style that looks more at the vegetable garden than at the laboratory. It's time for gastronomy to know that the excitement on the table has much more to do with heart and pantry; with soil, vegetables, herbs, flowers and greens; with the sea and the mountains. It is the year to go back to the product.
