Gastronomy. The word itself conjures up images of European chefs and erudite food writers. But today’s new gastronome is a chef who cares about biodynamic farming, a farmer who cares about the quality and heritage of food, an artisan food producer who supports heirloom and rare varieties, even a home cook who finds adventure in exploring everything edible. Now gastronomy sounds friendly and sustainable. Good for the earth, and good for us. Good for you, Gastronomy.

Made/grown/produced in Italy
A few of us returned to the beautiful food co-op of mostly Italian products and many of them Tuscan and even Florentine.
We ate lunch at
Il Laboratorio del Gusto located above the store.
The Laboratory of Taste
Caesar salad con pollo/with chicken.
They don't allow photos in the grocery store so I snuck a few from the restaurant upstairs.
