Chefs, according to Slow Food, are the heart of their communities and indispensable ambassadors for the gastronomy of their home territories. Each chef’s menu is a guide to the best local agricultural practices and, through their cuisine, chefs communicate the value of the landscape and its agrobiodiversity.

Slow Food also believes that chefs are important educators and activists upon whom we rely as we confront challenges like climate change, food waste, and excessive meat consumption, and work to promote sustainable, artisanal farming and fishing. Chefs lead the way toward the better, clearer, and fairer production and consumption that will provide a healthy future on our planet.

Many of these chefs members of the Slow Food Cooks’ Alliance, a project that involves over 1,300 cooks from 30 countries around the world.

In this conference, we’ll show you how the Alliance acts as a bridge between farmers, breeders, cheesemakers, fishers, winemakers, and other artisan producers who work with passion and respect for the land, for their animals, and for all of us as conscientious co-producers.

The panel of speakers will be published soon.

This event is free and open to all who are interested. To participate, please book a spot on the website (just click on the “Register” button on the event page and leave your email address).

Terra Madre Salone del Gusto is presented by Slow Food, the City of Turin, and the Piedmont Region. We look forward to seeing you at Parco Dora in Turin from Thursday, September 26 – Monday, September 30. Through food, we can rediscover ourselves as part of nature. #TerraMadre2024
