Sustainable Gastronomy Day is a global event that aims to highlight the need for sustainable food production, consumption, and waste management. This observance focuses on ensuring the use of local, seasonal, and ethically sourced ingredients in our culinary practices while preserving food biodiversity and supporting local farmers. It further emphasizes the importance of sustainability in gastronomy, which contributes to fostering cultural, social, and economic growth in communities worldwide.
The United Nations General Assembly designated June 18th as the Sustainable Gastronomy Day in 2016. India is home to a vast range of traditional and regional cuisines that rely on locally available ingredients. Sustainable Gastronomy Day serves to raise public awareness about the interdependence between agriculture, climate change, and food production, all of which are critical concerns in India. It also helps promote the use of native ingredients, promote the traditional knowledge related to Indian cuisine, and encourage sustainable gastronomic practices.
On Sustainable Gastronomy Day, several events take place across India to celebrate the rich culinary heritage of the country while addressing the importance of sustainable food practices. Local food festivals, workshops, and seminars are organized, focusing on sustainable culinary methods and indigenous ingredients, as well as addressing issues like food security, reducing food wastage, and supporting local farmers. Chefs, food enthusiasts, and community members come together to engage in dialogue, sharing locally inspired, sustainable recipes, and fostering a culture of responsible gastronomy. The celebration takes place annually on June 18th, reminding everyone in the nation to commit to a collective effort to preserve the culinary traditions and sustainability of our planet.
