Changing what we grow, cook, and eat is more imperative than ever if we want to save the planet from the effects of climate change. Thankfully, we need look no further than to the principles of health, sustainability, and flavour of the Mediterranean diet. Join the Torribera Mediterranean Center—a project of the Culinary Institute of America and the University of Barcelona—on 16 November 2020 for Tomorrow Tastes Mediterranean: Virtual Conference.
In roundtables and presentations, leading chefs and scientists from around the world will discuss health, nutrition, sustainability, and flavour strategies to help chefs and the hospitality industry adapt the Mediterranean Diet to create menus and products suited to the demands of 21st century consumers, in the era of covid-19. There will be plenty of time to talk to the experts and ask questions during this free virtual programme.

Inspired by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and in recognition of the 10th anniversary of the designation by UNESCO of the Mediterranean diet as an Intangible Cultural Heritage, and at a time of great uncertainty in our industry worldwide, how can scientists, chefs, business owners, government leaders, and hospitality staff work together to boost the visibility of the traditional Mediterranean Diet—fruits and vegetables, whole grains, olive oil, legumes, nuts and seeds—on menus across the Mediterranean and worldwide?
And to that end, how can this collaboration inspire next-generation culinary strategy, food product innovation, and consumer engagement on the genius of the centuries-old food cultures of the Mediterranean basin?
