Fresh Start / Local support and green commitment
“Cooking what we produce and producing what we cook.” Chef Diego Gallegos
More and more people are putting quality before quantity and looking for local products produced by passionate people, committed both to the environment and to their local history. Therefore, it’s not unusual to see today most respectable institutions, such as the Michelin Guide, creating a new label for sustainable gastronomy, “Gastronomie Durable.”
As an example, Azumendi, a 3-Michelin star restaurant in the Basque country (Spain), was named the world’s most sustainable restaurant in 2018. The green revolution is a necessity that is becoming a reality.
When was the last time that you tasted the real flavor of a juicy tomato? It is time to get back to the basics; our bodies and souls need it. For the last decade, Spain has been at the forefront of this movement, through its wines, first, and then progressively through the kitchens of many restaurants.
We believe at Food Lover Tour that the food ecosystem is ready to embrace this mindset. Our intention is to adjust our tours so we can offer more sustainable meals and locally grown products, in collaboration with our suppliers.
Therefore, we have carefully designed sustainable food-based menus with our dear partners. Along with our long-time commitment of taking our guests where the locals go, we want to commit to offering authentic and local flavors in 2020.
Time to enjoy!
