About Artisans of Taste

Our mission is to empower people who want to eat well and live life to the fullest.

At our health and culinary retreats in Puglia, we teach our unique Stile Mediterraneo – Mediterranean Lifestyle – Method that allows people to eat consciously and live a balanced life.

We also provide educational field trips in Puglia, Tuscany, Piedmont, Sardinia, Dolomites and other regions in Italy in order to teach how to apply our method. We bring people to the source of taste and connect them with select artisans that meet our criteria and make a difference in the world.

Our method was developed by our team of food experts and doctors and is based on the latest medical research as well as the principles of the ancient Mediterranean diet, one of the healthiest in the world according to Harvard Medical School.

Artisans of Taste was founded by Cinzia Rascazzo (social entrepreneur, Harvard MBA, food expert).

We were featured in the New York Times,  Forbes,  Sunday Times,  Sole 24ore.
