The title of the Region of European Gastronomy is awarded to areas that adhere to the policy and philosophy of, and have met the criteria developed by, the International Institute of Gastronomy, Culture, Arts and Tourism, to promote regional sustainable development by different sectors in collaboration. One of the requirements demanded for Menorca is to work in collaboration with different sectors of the Island. Initial stakeholders were signed up by the Consell Insular of Menorca; ASHOME; the Association of Bars and Cafes of Menorca; The Association of Journalists and Gastronomy Writers of the Balearic Islands; the Adult Education Association of Menorca; CAEB Menorca; the Guild of Fishermen of Ciutadella, Fornells and Mahon; the Country Cooperative; the School of Tourism of Menorca; and Fra Roger, Gastronomy and Culture. The list will increase with other groups.
This is the second round table of the series of innovatory projects for Menorca, organised by the Ateneu of Mahon and GOB in collaboration with the Menorca Preservation Fund.
