#REGENERACTION for Food for Change

By Relais & Châteaux/

Great Taste of Canada

For the sixth consecutive year, Relais & Châteaux and Slow Food join forces and support this year regenerative farming to restore our ecosystems and fight against climate change.

Regenerative agriculture creates naturally fertile land, reduces greenhouse gas emissions and increases carbon sequestration.

Relais & Châteaux is promoting regenerative farming practices among its members and their wider communities, in support of the joint annual Food for Change campaign.

Relais & Chateaux chefs are guardians of biodiversity, acting as stewards of nature's beauty, which in turn creates resiliency in our food system. Prioritizing soil health results in carbon drawdown and improved water cycles. This is regeneration. This is the future of gastronomy.

— Olivier Roellinger, Vice President of Relais & Châteaux

Langdon Hall

Let's travel to Langdon Hall in Canada, where Chef Bangerter and Head Gardener Jeremy share the importance of composting and saving culinary heritage through the story of the Climbing #PrairieRose that Jason Bangerter nominated to Slow Food's #ArkofTaste, which is a catalogue of near-extinct foods.

Slow Food has approved 103 products proposed by Relais & Châteaux members in 29 countries.

The nominations had to undergo a strict evaluation process through 20 technical committees, Slow Food’s Content and Projects Hub and the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenzo before being approved to the Ark of Taste.
