Never before it has been so important and crucial to us to keep in good health, to fight against unpredictable epidemics. The Mediterranean diet is not just a way of eating or cooking, it is a combination of using a variety of high-quality fresh foods with balanced life habits. It is not a “don’t do it” diet, but instead teaches how to buy and use local products, like veggies, fish, extra virgin olive oil, and red wine; all of which are integral components of the Mediterranean Diet. After 50 years of study, its proven benefits range from lowering the risk of obesity and fighting cardiovascular disease to relieving discomforts related to aging. The Mediterranean Diet is about improving your overall health. It is not by chance that the Mediterranean Diet is suggested by major universities and important medical institutions.
Each session will be divided in two parts; the first part will be an explanation of the base of the subjects. The second part will be hands on and at the end everybody will participate to a practical application of the cooking process and they will eat what they cook. Student can sign up for a single session or at a discounted rate for the entire series.
