THE renowned Mallorcan chef Maria Solivellas was invited by the Ministry of Ecology to take part in the Climate Summit in Madrid.
Joined by professionals from across the country, the chef who is best known for leading the kitchen at Ca na Toneta in Caimari, Mallorca, joined a round table which discussed the revolution of the food system. Paying special attention to sustainable development in gastronomy, Solivellas spoke about her experience in ecology over the last 18 years and the importance of local and seasonal produce in the industry.
Solivellas emphasised that in environmental activism it is important “to respect and question ecology through a more humanistic approach” where small details generate positive changes for the sustainability of food.
