GASTRONOMY IS THE STUDY OF FOOD AND CULTURE, WITH A PARTICULAR FOCUS ON GOURMET CUISINE.

 

Etymologically, the word “gastronomy” is derived from Ancient Greek γαστήρ, gastér, “stomach”, and νόμος, nómos “laws that govern”, and therefore literally means “the art or law of regulating the stomach”. The term is purposely all-encompassing: it subsumes all of cooking technique, nutritional facts, food science, and everything that has to do with palatability plus applications of taste and smell as human ingestion of foodstuffs goes.

Gastronomic Diff now, involves discovering, tasting, experiencing, researching, understanding and writing about the differences in food preparation and the sensory qualities of human nutrition as a whole. It also studies how nutrition interfaces with the broader culture.

Gastronomic Diff is a global gastronomy project based in Greece. Its mission is to discover, study, experiment and present the variety of gastronomic differences in terms of taste, locality, traditions and influential aspects of the food and drink industry. The projects consist of a number of professionals who team up with a common passion and appreciation for the unusual, uncommon and innovative in food and drink.
