For decades, health experts, including organizations like the American Heart Association, have touted the many benefits of the Mediterranean Diet. Inspired by the cultures and cuisines of those who live near the Mediterranean Sea in countries such as Greece, Spain, France and Italy, this diet highlights foods such as fish, olive oil, legumes, whole grains, fruit and vegetables.
If you’re looking for ideas to incorporate the Mediterranean Diet into your everyday life, this cooking program is for you. Chef Collette Haw, a classically trained Culinary Institute of America graduate with a passion for seasonal, sustainable cooking, will demonstrate three delicious dinner recipes that celebrate the Mediterranean style of cooking. This is a demonstration-style cooking program, so prepare to sit back, relax and let our chef prepare the meal while you enjoy delicious items.
While attending this program, participants will receive a booklet for the following demonstrated recipes:
- Pan Seared Salmon & Garbanzo Salad
- Roasted Chicken with Olives & Cous Cous
- Lemon Shrimp with Arugula Greek Salad
This program is presented by Chef Collette Haw and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
