THE MISSION OF THE GLOBAL AMBASSADORS
The total number of Ambassadors of Taste for the Global Gastronomy® form a culinary community with distinctive roles, that are connected to the promotion and sustainment of their own culture and local traditions to the rest of the world. Furthermore, the "Global Ambassadors" are "officially" representing world gastronomy and reinforce the idea of a common global "culinary heritage". The role of a "Global Ambassador" complies with core values like the "environmental sustainability", "humanitarian aid" and need for "unity and peace". Their contribution in the developement of world gastronomy is essential!
THE GOLDEN SPIRAL (EMBLEM)
The golden spiral is the emblem of the certification award of Ambassadors of Taste for the Global Gastronomy® and is derived by ancient Greece, where it was used as a symbol of growth, power and unity. In addition, Ancient Greece was the first in history to introduce the word "gastronomy" (gastronomía), from (gastḗr, “stomach”) + (nómos, “knowledge, law”) *etymology
