Take your time, to enjoy and listen to your sensations: this is the best way to eat good.

Bring seasons to your table
At every new season, enjoy the pleasure of food you have not tasted for the whole year.

Think global, eat local.
Choose products from producers close to your home: you will empower local economy, and you will strengthen the bonds with your neighbors.

Eat something you have grown... Grow something you love to eat.
This is the best way to keep in touch with nature.

Meet farmers, ranchers, artisans and specialized traders in person.
Buy short-chain products from local fairs or buying groups, at artisan shops (like local bakeries or delicatessen sellers) or at local expert and competent shopowners.

Be curious!
When you are at the store, at the restaurant, at the bar, make questions about the quality of the products.

Cook!.

Spend better, spend less!
Eating better does not necessarily mean to spend more. But do not save on quality!

Become explorers of taste!
Educate your children, your friends and acquaintances to the true pleasure of eating.
