Eating Healthily: Modern Mediterranean

Saturday 20th January 2018

The Cookery Studio invites you to join us on this new and vibrant class that makes vegetables & fish the stars of the show. Recent studies indicate that the Mediterranean way of eating is one of the healthiest and also appears to boost brain power. The emphasis on fruits, vegetables, whole-grains, beans, legumes & healthy fats makes for a nutrient rich high-fibre diet (in other words you won't be hungry). It is also relatively low in protein and saturated fat. In this class, you will learn how to use Mediterranean ingredients to create inspiring, delicious & healthy recipes.
