An initiative in Spain has announced to launch this year the new “International Journal of Gastronomy and Food Science”.
- AZTI-tecnalia, a Spanish technology center specializing in marine and food research
- ALICIA, a Catalan research center focusing on technological innovation in kitchen science and the dissemination of agronourishment and gastronomic heritage
- the restaurant Mugaritz
- the websites aliment@tec and Ciencia y gastronomia
The scope and objective is to fill the gap in the expanding fields of Gastronomy and Food Science, by adopting a scientific approach. The ultimate goal is to construct a communication channel between chefs and food scientists.
This is another element in the justification of the claim that Spain has a strong leadership role in developing the food and gastronomy scene
