Last October, more than 1,000 small-scale farmers from all corners of the world gathered in Turin for the Terra Madre & Salone del Gusto, a biannual event sponsored by the international Slow Foodassociation.
It was a spectacular event with top notch guest speakers like Alice Waters, activist Vandana Shiva and José Graziano Da Silva, director of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization.
If you didn't get a chance to attend the event (something you should do at least on once in your life), watch the short film below to see all you missed out on. Keep some tissues nearby, you may need them.
The Brazilian chef from O Bar da Dona Onça and A Casa do Porco in São Paulo has been recognised for her outstanding contribution to the restaurant industry and her role in driving positive change in her community.
