I am a great fan of Taste, the trade food show that is held in Firenze, every year in March.
Where else could I meet such a large concentration of Gustiamo's producers? In one spot, for three days, we talk about future plans, prices, new products and orders... we have fun, we talk about family things and we share the most delicious gossip, too.
Our producers are our friends, we talk on the phone constantly and we love to see them in action at their places, but also at Taste, at least once a year!
It was great to see Piero Rondolino of Acquerello Rice, the Lunardi brothers of La Molina Chocolate, Antonella Pinna (right) of Antichi Uliveti Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Rosalba Cappelletti of La Valletta farm in Colfiorito, Umbria.
And other than all these wonderful, hard working producers, the Taste show is on a manageable scale in a beautiful spot.
