The Origin of Eathos
The roots of Eathos go back decades, to an epic buddy trip through Europe. Our good friends were food-loving gastro-tourists before Anthony Bourdain made it a thing.
They hit the hottest culinary spots in Paris, the cobblestone cafes of Avignon, the coffeehouses of Vienna, beer halls of Germany and gypsy bars of Budapest. They toured vineyards in France and Spain, but what they enjoyed the most was the Italian countryside.
They immersed themselves in Italy's ancient cooking traditions. The cheese. The wine. The bread. The pasta.
They helped in the kitchen and absorbed every detail. They studied the ingredients, picked the olives and collected the eggs for their evening meals. They experienced a new, profound connection with the land, the food and the culture.
One particularly lovely evening, the two travelers were enjoying a festive communal dinner on a 5th generation Tuscan farm. Wine flowed and the flavors spilled over into an animated discussion about business, sustainability, inclusion and of course, food.
It was always the food.
