Ikaria Cooking and Longevity Workshop | Co-op Learning Center, Lebanon Co-op location | zaterdag, 12. oktober 2019

Join us for two very special workshops unlike any other we offer at the Co-op. Georgios and Eleni share the centuries-old cooking philosophies of Ikaria- directly connecting food with health and longevity.
This workshop is a "package" of 4 things under one event. 1) Cooking classes of the Ikaria cookery - full presentation of the special way to cook without "killing" the nutrients 2) A full meal with wine, and the way of how we dine in a Blue zone 3) Information about proper food and how proper foods can benefit health by developing the gut microbiome 4) Tips for healthy living and longevity. 
The traditional diet of Ikaria is plant based and it is considered as the healthiest and one of the tastiest cuisines in the Mediterranean area. The cookery of Ikaria, even though it is a Greek island, has significant differences from the other Greek cuisine as it is mostly plant based recipes. The cooking methods are also unique as there is no frying, no grill and food will be prepared in the lowest possible temperature.
The recipes in the workshops will be vegan and vegetarian, focusing on preparing foods like legumes, vegetables and pies. Making filo from scratch. Making sourdough bread from scratch. Making vegetable pasta from scratch. Using organic whole grain flour, organic legumes and other ingredients, we will cover not only main dishes but also dips, cookies and ideas for healthy breakfasts. Participants can come either one both days as different recipes will be shared each day.
Please note: class coupons and free vouchers will not be accepted for this special workshop series.
Instructors: George and Eleni Karimalis
