Arc of Taste

Terra Madre

Since 1996, more than 1,100 products from over 50 countries have been added to the International Ark of Taste. Over 200 of these foods are from the USA, and we are always seeking more edible treasures to include. The Ark of Taste is a tool for farmers, ranchers, fishers, chefs, grocers, educators and consumers to seek out and celebrate our country's diverse biological, cultural and culinary heritage.
September 22-26, 2016 in Turin, Italy
Slow Food will once again gather its leaders and supporters from across the globe for an unparalleled event – Terra Madre Salone del Gusto. This year marks an important evolution for the gathering, which had its beginnings in 1996. For the first time, it will move out into the beautiful city of Turin, making the delicious and important message of Slow Food available to all.
