Who is a gastronome?

This is not an easy question to answer. A Gastronome is a new kind of food professional who understands the entire food-production chain, from the agricultural starting point through its industrial transformation and distribution, paying particular attention to environmental and sustainability issues. It is now a sought-after positon for many working realities and all the requests are sorted out by our Career center.

A Gastronome understands how to connect food processes to economic and communication systems, the complex relationships within enogastronomic tourism, the nuances of marketing of high-quality products, and how to promote  the richness of regional food traditions.

Of course, the best way to understand this experience is to hear directly from them! If you’re curious about what your UNISG colleagues are doing around the world, we suggest that you start here by reading their interviews below
