Workshop: “Precision Nutrition, Culinary Vision and the Mediterranean Diet”
For the second year in a row, the “Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives” Conference will be held by two of the most prestigious, world-renowned institutions: Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and The Culinary Institute of America. The conference will focus on the Mediterranean Diet as one of the healthiest, most balanced and easy-to-follow eating patterns for the overall population. The California campus of The Culinary Institute of America will present two workshops next Saturday, titled “Precision Nutrition, Culinary Vision and the Mediterranean Diet.” The workshop will be led by Dr. José María Ordovás, Director of the Nutrition and Genomics Laboratory of Tufts University in Boston and pioneer in nutrigenomics. He will analyze how the Mediterranean Diet, rich in extra virgin olive oil, interacts with our genes, helping to protect us from some of the main ailments that afflict society. The workshops will conclude with a cooking demonstration by Spanish Chef Daniel Olivella.
