For my beloved Brother who introduced me to the art of cooking, who taught me how to taste and truly love food. Without him I'd never be able to be where I am today.

A Gastronome

A gastronome has a holistic approach to gastronomy. This approach is built upon multidisciplinary knowledge and expertise.

A gastronome has an in-depth understanding of human food culture(s) and foodways.
A gastronome consults to create better communication, policy and strategies for basic to complex food systems.
A gastronome often works with didactic goals.
A gastronome advises how to better market, package and design edible products or concepts.
A gastronome doesn’t hesitate getting his/her hands dirty in soil to comprehend agriculture and rural realities.

A gastronome is often the missing link between the various actors in the gastronomical sphere.

I am specialized in gastro-research, communication and foodways that say something about the people it is made up of.


  1. Hi Edith,
    I was wondering if I could ask you about your experience "in a nut shell" about UNISG?
    I've read a few people's blog entries and there seems to be conflicting thoughts about the quality of the education / organisation / professionalism
    Are you able to share with me your experience in summary?
    Thanks in advance for your time

    1. Hey Katharine!

      Sure thing! Feel free to write me an email with any quetsions:



Tell me what you think. Did I make you hungry?
