Each year the international event selects a global delegation of culinary experts to participate and share how Slow Food's values of creating a world in which there is good, clean, and fair food for all are accomplished around the world. Farmers, chefs, and other food experts will prepare a dish presentation to showcase at the summit where attendees will have the opportunity to try the best cuisine from all parts of the world.
This year marks the event's 20th anniversary which will be celebrated in the City of Turin taking over the most beautiful and prestigious sites in the city. Parco del Valentino, Borgo Medievale, Palazzo Reale, Teatro Carignano, Circolo dei Lettori and Reggia di Venaria, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are just some of the venues where the event will take place.
