Convivium Reportages are back!
With the Covid-19 emergency, the catering and hôtellerie sectors have been brought to their knees by bizarre political choices.
It was difficult for us to understand why a dinner at a restaurant, "spaced out" and with all the preventive measures, was considered more risky than shopping at the supermarket, a place of inevitable gathering.
We didn't even understand why a drive home at midnight, as a couple and at home, could seem more dangerous than a transfer to the office at 9 in the morning.
An obtuse policy as always had decided that the virus operated with different virulence according to the times, and with this it condemned entire sectors, hitting some of the healthiest and most virtuous for the country's economy...
That same policy that guaranteed an income to stay at home doing nothing, with the obvious consequence of making the recruitment of staff for Restaurants and Hotels very problematic!
During the lockdown we worked hard to support the Chefs by publishing their initiatives and Delivery Menus, and inventing new formats to keep them always at the center of media attention, such as Video Interviews with their wives and companions.
Where were influencers and foodbloggers at that time, not to mention some critics "stars"?
Maybe they lacked bones to be stripped? May it never be that the Virus has at least served to shed light on the real value of some profiles?
Our hope is that the coming of a new course will banish presumption, boasting and improvisation to reward serious and conscientious long-term work instead.
