Mexico has an incredibly diverse range of terrains, cuisines and traditions. The region of Guanajuato is a leader in sustainable agriculture, and when we visit we take a recorrido around the grounds of Vía Orgánica to learn about the native and adaptive species growing all around the farm that in turn feed and educate the local community. Co-founder Rosana Álvarez shows us the roots and vision of this incredible organization.
Beyond a condiment, true virgin and extra virgin olive oil is an essential staple of the Italian diet, with an impressive host of health benefits, flavor compositions, and a variety of uses. To preserve and nurture the continued cultivation of quality olive oil in Italy, the work of our community partner is inspiring.
With opportunities for engagement that include ‘Chefugee’ cooking classes and yoga sessions led by a certified teacher, our partnership with Madrid for Refugees has us excited in more ways than one! Of course, offering unique opportunities for refugees and asylum seekers in Madrid to share their skills, culture and local cuisine with guests is just one of the many incredible programs that MFR spearheads. We spoke with Madrid for Refugees founder Christina Samson about the integral work they do.
