SìChef Academy Vision is being driven by some values that seek to promote the Italian Food & Wine culture internationally and by using a well-advanced and technological way.
SìChef idea coming up from a long experience in cooking publishing. Thanks to that it was possible to observe over years at all the culinary culture from a privileged vantage point.
We like to regard cooking as the first cultural act human beings have accomplished because through this they were able to transform nature for a specific aim. The meaning of speaking about food is to express an intimate and basic aspect of a Country knowledge. If we want to say it with the antropologist Franco La Cecla words, we can say “Cuisine is the key to access a culture “.
Around a table people tell their own History, revalue their own traditions, handed them down and mix them with others. People express themselves by using food, in an incessant transformation and in connection with their social and cultural contexts.
The cuisine is dynamic and in an incessant transformation. It is something to protect and to be told. Food is often handed down with respect because it is one of the most important think to define people cultural identity.
Kitchen topics are very attractive but often they rappresent the key to other topics such as: natural environment protection; social connection between food production and the territory; the education to different testes for preventing whatever marketing logics; the health; taste globalization; biodiversity protection…therefore for human race food is the instrument to create a sense of themselves in the world.
This cultural humus and the topics about the preparation of savory dishes are SìChef Academy ground. SìChef Academy has the purpose of involving people interests by using the work of experts into food field, chefs, journalists, food and wine critics and experienced teachers. The aim is to share with people worldwide, all about Italian cooking experience, hands it down, defends it and makes it more accessible to everybody by the use of the online learning constant technological innovation.
