Within the framework of the project Slow Food Central Europe: culture, heritage, identity and food, in Dubrovnik, on 19th November, the second local training was held on the topic of valorisation of the gastronomic-cultural heritage of Dubrovnik and its surrounding area. The training had been prepared thanks to the experience and knowledge acquired in the first year and a half of the project by the project leaders for Croatia, the members of the City Development Agency DURA and Kinookus Association, and especially thanks to the training they attended during the Terra Madre Salone del Gusto manifestation held in Turin from 20th to 24th September.

The training programme explained in details the four possible ways of GHC valorisation with a special emphasis on the Slow Food approach to this topic and its specificities. Ivo Kara-Pešić, the training leader, presented the current project phase and introduced the planned pilot action (multimedia exhibition) and the final project goal – a transnational strategy for the valorisation of GHC. Moreover, he emphasized that the participants from our area will, for the first time, have the opportunity to get to know the very core of the Slow Food approach.
