Gastronomy is the science and art that studies the relationship of human beings with their food and their environment or surroundings. The gourmet is the individual who cares about this art.

It is often mistakenly believed that the term gastronomy only has to do with culinary art and cutlery around a table. However, this is a small part of the field of study of this discipline: it cannot always be said that a cook is a gourmet. Gastronomy studies various cultural components, taking food as its central axis.

In addition to studying how people are connected in terms of their nutrition, it also studies their origin, this means that factors such as customs, place, religious creed and history are studied, these four components are also the objects of study that gastronomy used to thoroughly study its provenance. Preparation techniques, cooking times and ingredients are involved in preparing a recipe.

Gastronomy is the study of the link that human beings have with their diet in relation to their environment or surroundings. Its name comes from the Greek “gastrós”, which means “stomach or belly” and “nomos” which means “law”.

Many times we associate gastronomy only with the culinary art and the characteristics around a restaurant, but that is not correct because this professional and cultural area is not limited exclusively to the preparation of dishes itself.

A professional in gastronomy possesses the skills of a cook and understands many other areas, such as administration, for example.

In other words, gastronomy studies the various components that make up the relationship with food from a cultural point of view and a chef is in charge of preparing dishes and organizing a kitchen.

Jam made with love

Jam made with love. The history of this family business MONTSERRAT RULL, begins in the nineties of the last century in Alforja, a picturesque town in Baix Camp, Tarragona province.
Although the hazelnut had been in crisis for several years in the main crop – almost the only one in the municipality – the prospects for the future were very bad and Joel Salvat, and his family, thought that alternatives had to be found.
And that’s when the light bulb went on that the quince crop could be expanded. It was a tree that in a very small scale was present in all the games of the term, and that it resisted very well any excess of the climatology: cold, heat, drought or other environmental factors. In addition, the fruit, the quince, was very easy to make – all the grandmothers made quince meat in their houses in the area.
