We promote sustainable consumption and production habits, to face climate change effects in the communities, linking local gastronomy to industries as tourism.

From our didactic kitchens we encourage the use of organic products to guarantee freshness and adequate food safety in order to provide the population with healthy food and high nutritional value; an experience that allows the design of innovation menus with local identity, using differentiated endemic, native products.
