Slow Food On Campus Launch at The University of West London

Slow Food On Campus Launch at The University of West London

Chef Alliance Member Alessandro Grano teaches students about Forgotten Foods breeds and cheese.

Slow Food on Campus is delighted to announce this year’s University of West London launch event. On November 25, Chef Alliance member Alessandro Grano will deliver a a Forgotten Foods Demonstration to the UWL campus students on English rare breeds as well as on the versatility of cheese in different dishes.

Originally from Puglia, Alessandro’s passion for food rose in the early days whilst accompanying his grandfather through the local food markets. As a professional chef, he gained invaluable experience during his tenure at the Dorchester, the Ritz and the Four Seasons before becoming Head Chef at Androuet’s in London. At Androuet’s, he works directly with small producers following the seasonality of the cheeses and he is famous for his own adaptation of the cheese fondue, raclette and tartiflette.

The demonstration will be followed by a short presentation on Slow Food UK‘s mission and objectives, as well as on our Forgotten Foods and Chef Alliance programmes. We will also be presenting our brand new Slow Food On Campus group to which any of the students will be able to sign-up!

The demonstration will take place in room H236 from 3-5pm and all UWL students are invited and welcome to attend.

To confirm your participation or to get more information and details, get in touch with our Campus Leader Alexander Buchanan or drop us an email at

As for all of our campus initiatives, we would like to thank our partner Grana Padano for their support in helping us promote and develop local food cultures related to university life.

We would also like to thank Alessandro for participating in this workshop as well as Androuet for their support and cooperation.
