What is it all about?

The Mediterranean Diet is more than just food: it’s a way of life. Classified by UNESCO, in 2010, as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, the Mediterranean Diet brings together gastronomy, tradition, culture and healthfulness. Inspired by the ever-changing cultural landscape of the region of the Mediterranean basin, this diet is an open dialogue between secular practices and innovation.
