What are the criteria for creating an Airbnb Slow Food Experience?
Must offer the possibility to discover food products, techniques and cultures through the lens of Slow Food; this requires hosts to demonstrate an extensive knowledge of Slow Food’s principles and its philosophy, of what constitutes quality in gastronomy and an understanding of the major challenges and problems that threaten it
Cannot involve products or supply chains that do not comply with the Slow Food principles (GMO products, farmed fish, foie gras, ultra-processed foods etc.) must meet the criteria for exhibitors at Slow Food events (learn more here )
Respect the seasonality of products
Raises the travellers’ awareness of the Slow Food values, disclosing the main Slow Food projects in the area, and utilize the products of our communities and Presidia wherever possible
Must focus on artisan food products from producers that are rooted in a given territory, rather than products of industrial origin. The products need not necessarily be traditional or autochthonous food, but they must be clearly linked to local communities (e.g. a tour to discover the culinary traditions of the Moroccan community in Turin, Italy); must be organized in such a way that the host always uses and offers, whenever possible, artisanal and local products
Must include food tastings, as Slow Food believes that gastronomic knowledge entails tasting products
Must be run by members of Slow Food or members of our communities
