OUR  MISSION

We are a  NON PROFIT organisation that is dedicated to promoting a society that celebrates the region’s cultural diversity, and recognises the link between people, plate and planet.

We are committed to seeing the revival of the home kitchen and the table, as centres of health, culture, and community

It’s only in this way that we will see the invigoration and proliferation of regional, seasonal culinary traditions
