1 Bartending association Sicily
over 400 fish-based tastings accompanied by wines, prepared over the three days of the event
Three intense days to taste, learn, share and promote Sicilian fish products accompanied by local “fish” oils and wines.
An event with a rich calendar of appointments: seminars, thematic exhibitions, meetings with gastronomic historians, sommeliers, chefs and cooks from the world of gastronomic art, experts in food science, scientific research and food safety, as well as trade unions and fishermen’s associations, a Bartending association which has skilfully promoted healthy, responsible and aware drinking.
Gastronomy has therefore been a key to discovering the uses and customs of our traditional seafaring culture.
The main element of innovation of the 5th edition of “Isola del Gusto” was to correctly disseminate knowledge of the less valuable fish products of the Mediterranean among final consumers, with the aim of increasing responsible judgment, changing purchasing habits and consumption of fish in respect of their reproduction periods, in order to contribute to sustainable fishing.
