THE GOLDEN SPIRAL (EMBLEM)
The golden spiral is the emblem of the certification award of Ambassadors of Taste for the Global Gastronomy® and is derived by ancient Greece, where it was used as a symbol of growth, power and unity. In addition, Ancient Greece was the first in history to introduce the word “gastronomy” (gastronomía), from (gastḗr, “stomach”) + (nómos, “knowledge, law”) *etymology
Mr. Alan Coxon shares his vision with the culinary world:
I have had the pleasure and privileged of filming and presenting more than 1,250 TV cookery shows for BBC Worldwide, food network, channel five and ITV to name but a few. Shows that were filmed around the world and screened in more than 82 countries. It gives me great pleasure to be in a position to connect with a global audience, take people on a culinary journey, educate, stimulate, entertain and excite them in the food world in which I live .
This opportunity to enter the lives and homes of millions of people around the world is a privilege like no other!, imparting knowledge, sharing the joys of food, gastronomy and history whilst metaphorically breaking bread with people in front of their screens is a sensational way to communicate.
Whilst I have been within the food and hospitality Industry for more than 40 years, my work for the past 20 years has been focused within the global market place and in today’s challenging and confused world there has never been such an important time to build human bridges where politics and wars have destroyed them, where our cultures differ but where food and gastronomy can bring us all around the table. My hope is that we can continue to bring enjoyment and hope through our love of food and help improve the world in which we live via this medium.
