RETHINK FOOD VIRTUAL CHALLENGE 2023: WRAPPING UP!

The VETLOVESFOOD 2023 International Virtual Challenge ended with 12 recipes submitted: of these, 10 were considered as living up to the definition of eco-sustainability, highlighting not only local traditions, but also the participants’ green skills in creating sustainable, low-carbon and zero food waste recipes.


This unique competition aimed to bring together passionate individuals and culinary experts to showcase their innovative cooking recipes that not only tackle food waste but also contribute to reducing our carbon footprint. We were truly amazed by the creativity and commitment demonstrated by all the participants.

We want to take a moment to express our gratitude to each and every one of you who Comprar cialis generico barato en espaΓ±a participated in this journey. Your dedication to promoting sustainable practices in the culinary world is truly inspiring. Together, we are making a significant impact on the way we think about food and its environmental implications.


The challenge was aimed at senior professional chefs, vocational training students over the age of 18 and HORECA students under the tutelage of a vocational training teacher; the recipes were evaluated using a double criterion.

On the one hand, the first criterion was the votes received on social media;

On the other hand, international judging criteria were used: the carbon footprint of the recipe, the arrangement and number of ingredients, technical accuracy, the ratio between different macronutrients and the interpretation of the motto  ‘Rethink – Reduce – Reuse’ .


Among all the 12 recipes submitted, up to the standards set by the challenge, that of the Quoquomodo Zefiro students – who participated under the tutelage of VET teacher Simone Carone – triumphed:
