Euro Gusto is the European rendez-vous for the Slow Food movement. Slow Food is all about taste (gusto) combined with ethical consumption. While we believe that ? eating is an agricultural act ?, an act with consequences that go way beyond the dinner table, under no circumstances are we giving up on the pleasure of eating.
The impetus behind Euro Gusto is the wish to share this vision of the food we eat with the widest audience possible. Euro Gusto is an opportunity to share experiences and make connections around the subject of food with ease, conviviality being the key, another of the founding values of Slow Food.
The ingredients for this biennale event are: a market for products from near and far, Slow Food Presidia from all over France and Europe, a Bistrot Paysan serving regional specialities, an OEnoth?que showcasing wines and wine makers, Earth and Taste workshops, debates on food and agriculture, a fun and educational space for children.
Euro Gusto will have a specific role in this partnership, offering workshops and exchange of experiences, best practices and techniques for the production of certain categories of food, specially for meat and the porcine sector between european producers.
This producers will have to be concerned by the quality, the taste, the organoleptic quality, the tradition and the environnemental impact of their practices and food productions. Specially considering the crisis and scandals that the meat industry is facing, and the needs of local, healthy and quality meat for consumers. Given the high value-added processed products derived from meat in France, it is a matter of great interest and appreciation for european producers to follow a workshop in the two days following the end of the event (Euro gusto). This would be an excellent occasion for these european producers to meet and exchange experiences about manufacturing in order to allow them to to improve their techniques and their products, working with local artisan producers. For a concrete example: part of the local French producers could teach Italian producers the production technique of rillettes, typical of Touraine, and its value-creation.
Inside the learning partnership, Euro Gusto will take on the role of Evaluation project coordinator, in collaboration with SFI, in order to create a gradual evaluation, with feedbacks and possibilities to improve our training offers and our communication with the learners.
