At this year’s Terroir Symposium in Toronto, Terroir founder, Arlene Stein, moderated a vital main-stage panel aimed at helping food leaders better understand sustainable seafood procurement by informing an audience of chefs, restaurateurs, farmers and producers on how to make better and more informed buying decisions to ensure a sustainable future for our seas. Check out the panel’s learnings here.
Through this short film, Arlene Stein has united Norway's best restaurants, chefs, food experts and innovators in a study of successful food leadership, the importance of terroir, and how food leaders can not just bring the principle to life, but also make it relevant for a new generation of chefs and diners.
Terroir is most notability defined through our foodways. The meals we share tell the story of our identity, so that what we eat can define who we are. When we examine food cultures through their regions we’re afforded a perspective into the past and a glimpse of the future through the ingredients, techniques and traditions at work. There is no constant, only a momentary look at the migration of people and their landscape.
