  • Buon Ricordo’s crisis-busting commitment: to reinforce our network and continue to concentrate on quality; promoting the huge range of regional cuisine in our 123 restaurants

    This is what our members all agreed on at the Association’s annual general meeting held at Altomonte, a true pearl of the Calabria region in Southern Italy. The AGM saw three days dense with hard work and the added bonus of a fascinating voyage of discovery exploring the Province of Cosenza’s cultural and gastronomic heritage, all organised by member of the board Enzo Barbieri, owner of the Hotel Barbieri, the headquarters of this year’s event, whose restaurant is part of the history of the Buon Ricordo association. AGM meetings were held in the 14th century Dominican Monastery in the historic centre of Altomonte ( One of Italy’s “Borgo Bello” towns and famed for its bread), a prestigious setting for Italy’s oldest and best-known restaurant association whose 123 members are celebrating 48 years of successful activity in 2012.
