Following the rhythm of the seasons allows our raw materials to grow and mature in a healthy way, reducing the use of pesticides and for us to present them to you in the best possible way: tasty, fragrant and at their best nutritional quality. An important reason for following seasonality concerns taste: for example, a tomato, a typically summer fruit, eaten during the winter will have a different flavor; furthermore, the reduction in flavor leads to the abuse of iodized salt or other flavor enhancers.
Another reason for eating seasonal foods is respect for the environment: growing products out of season involves resorting to greenhouses whose operation requires heating and energy that have a high environmental cost. Furthermore, humidity in the greenhouse leads to the proliferation of bacteria, which requires the use of fertilizers.
