Food is a central activity of mankind and one of the single-most significant trademarks of culture and heritage.

Culinary traditions are fundamental expressions of a nation’s identity, which are increasingly under threat by fast changing socio-economic environment of the current times.

We all, those who care- should work collaboratively to promote and preserve our culinary traditions and culinary heritage.

It remains the pivot of community traditions to protect the culinary knowledge bequeathed to us over generations.

It is important to safeguard this wealth for posterity, to be transmitted from generation to generation. Communities must feel proud with a sense of identity and continuity of its cultural and heritage values.
