Festival del Gusto in Le Marche, Italy

Our Festival del Gusto in Le Marche this September will be a gathering of organic and biodynamic food, wine and olive oil producers from the Le Marche region of eastern Italy as well as artisan producers and visitors from other parts of Italy, the UK, Holland and the USA.
The Festival will be a chance for small artisan producers to meet, discuss ideas and network as well as trying the products from eight invited producers who will have their wine, olive oil, pasta, honey, cheeses and salumi to taste and sell.
There will also be a chance to take part in workshops, classes and tastings throughout the afternoon before enjoying an evening meal prepared from the produce brought on the day by the producers.
Festival del Gusto will be held just outside the Adriatic coastal resort of Senigallia in the centre of the Italian region of Le Marche and we are very happy to be able to hold it at the lovely country house, the Locanda Strada della Marina.

The Gaia Foundation Malta

On a recent trip to Malta we finally managed to visit the Gaia Foundation and meet some of the inspirational people who are part of this exciting environmental project set up in 1994. They are a non profit and non Governmental organisation and belongs to the Global Ecovillage Network, is a member of the Worldwatch Institute and part of the world wide Gaia Movement. The Foundation is based in the Elysium coastal site which is located in the Gwajn Tuffieha area of the Maltese islands and also very close to the very popular Golden bay which makes up part of this beautiful coastline.
While visiting the Foundation we purchased some of their lovely organic olive oil, the Caravaggio, which is cold pressed very soon after harvesting and a blend of Carolea, Frantoio, Cipressino, Leccino and some lesser know varieties of Maltese olive. We hope to be able to arrange tastings in both London and Norwich later in the year of this very rare and special extra virgin olive oil.

Durante il nostro ultimo…
