Cooks are agents of change. We are responsible for our agro-gastronomic heritage and the health and well-being of our communities and the planet.
Our mission is to empower the new generation of cooks to transform the local community food systems through a sustainable and healthy gastronomy and advance food sovereignty.
Autóktono creates a network of local producers that practice responsible and sustainable fishing and farming.
Autóktono works hand in hand with the local agriculturists. We plant and harvest for our kitchen.
Healthy and sustainable cuisine with identity.
Autóktono promotes the development of local, sustainable community food systems to advance food sovereignty.
