Description

Eat Well, Be Well – The Mediterranean Way is a 4 week cooking course, in which Elizabeth Peddey introduces you to some of the finer points of the Mediterranean Diet and Lifestyle.  

This Melbourne based course is ideal whether you are presenting under medical instructions,  you are new to cooking, if you are wanting to improve the quality and health of the food you prepare or you simply want to be able to create an impressive repertoire of simple, tasty, healthy, seasonal dishes that taste great and that you will be proud to present to your family and friends.

This cooking course is part of the Kitchen Confidence 101 Series designed with the beginner or less confident cook in mind.  That said, the recipe repertoire throughout the course is always well received by people who cook regularly and are keen to extend their cooking repertoire.

Most of us are perfectly aware of the benefits and constituents of the Mediterranean Diet.  We all know that we should eat more fruit, vegetables, and herbs, small boney fish and far less red meat and well, not a lot of sugar at all.  Elizabeth introduces you to ways of achieving this through the simplest of recipes and seasonal ingredients which breathe the colour and light of the Mediterranean on to your table.

The doctrine of the course, is based on the work of Ancel and Margaret Keys who popularised the health benefits of the Mediterranean Diet and lifestyle of Southern Italy in the 1960s.  Ancel and Margaret Keys lived in Pioppi on the Cilento coast, in southern Italy for over 40 years, learning and understanding the food ways of the region.

The recipes in the course have been carefully selected from the extensive classic writings of Elizabeth David, Patience Gray, Claudia Rodin and Ancel and Margaret Keys, and the cooks and chefs, and culinary minded individuals of Cilento.  Elizabeth also examines with you some of the traditional food ways of the Cilento coast in Southern Italy, the place where Ancel and Margaret Keys first coined the term the Mediterranean Diet.  Elizabeth has a house in the medieval village of Pisciotta, which is on the Cilento coast and brings insights on the ingredients and meals of this region of Italy.

Elizabeth lived in Pisciotta in 2001 with her children and she and her husband Mark, and their family and friends continue to return there each year.  Elizabeth takes small group tours to Cilento – exploring the gastronomy and culture of the region between June and October.  Italian Cooking Classes are also offered in Elizabeth’s home in Pisciotta or facilitated in surrounding restaurants or homes, cooking with local chefs and women of the village.

This practical, fun program will leave you loaded with achievable ideas for weeknight dinners and simple entertaining.
