Harvesting Food through History. Cooking, eating and meeting its makers, the daily life of a shepherd.
Anthropology of Food and Life Style: The Rhythms and the Connections between Food, Culture and Landscape.
The venerated cuisine of the Mediterranean has been created and re-created through the course of history by geography, social customs, migration and the mythical and religious universe wrapped around “eating”. The Mediterranean diet is inclusive of “lifestyle” which upholds traditional methods of farming and fishing and nurtures the practice of family meals, and celebration.
Through hands-on activities, cooking, excursions, discussions and lectures, our workshop celebrates and promotes the culture, ingredients, production, and cooking methods of the “diet” deeply rooted in its predominantly Greek and Roman origins.
The workshop is led by Tonio Creanza, the Founder and Director of Messors, a native of Puglia, along with his colleagues of local farmers, cheese makers, shepherds, historians, restauranteurs, etc.
Through talks and discussions on the Anthropology of Food and Lifestyle, the workshop will encompass the sustainability of the resources, the biodiversity and the societal changes, and the current debate on the need to implement a sustainable way of life.
Participants are involved in the “food journey” to learn and understand the rhythms and the connections expressed by food: the seasonality, the social tempo of a weekly structured diet; the pace dictated by yeast rising in bread dough, or the time it takes to make cheese from basic ingredients.
