Who we are
The Mediterranean Cooking Congress was conceived as a territorial marketing project and it was launched in 2014 by the company By Tourist, touring through the Mediterranean nations.
Our goal? To create space and tools for an organized and honest communication, which will cultivate a critical thinking in the new generations and it will raise awareness among producers, innovators, suppliers, businessmen, experts and consumers through knowledgeable manners towards the Mediterranean Sea, from the land to the sea.
How? Through opportunities for interactions and searching continuous synergies, promoting international meetings and formative discussions, workshops in school focused on the raw materials of the Mediterranean coasts, conferences with scientific approaches and b2b moments between smaller producers and importers-suppliers, incentivizing the exportation of traditional products and, through the knowledge of the chefs, spreading the culinary traditions and the culture of the flavors of the Mediterranean Sea.
Furthermore, two projects are related to this initiative, both published by the company By Tourist: Gusto Mediterraneo, magazine in two languages, registered to the courthouse and the Roc from 2007, and the book guide Mediterranean Experiences.
