Pietro D'ALESSIO (Italy) - 2007 graduate

General manager of Gastronomika Italia (a fine food & wine marketing company based in Parma)

« I decided to apply for the DUGGAT’s program almost immediately after having read its lecturers and contents, as I was looking for a course that could achieve my knowledge about themes related to food from different perspectives.

The courses gave me some useful tools (from the scientific, economical, sociological and historical side) to read and understand the world of gastronomy, decoding new trends and classic views. In addition to the academic activities, I appreciated the several superb ‘practical approaches’ (dinner-events, tastings, visits and cooking at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris) that completed the learning-program and made it really special.

So, the two weeks multidisciplinary DUGGAT’s program really met my expectations to achieve my know-how and to focus future projects and ideas. Also, being in a great group of food-passioned people coming from 11 countries it was an extraordinary experience, professional and human. BELLISSIMO! »
