The Mediterranean diet: culinary medicine



The Mediterranean diet: culinary medicine

A talk on the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet, followed by light lunch.

With Prof. Roberto Di Lauro (Scientific Attaché, Embassy of Italy), Prof. David Foskett (MBE, The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts), Chef Enzo Oliveri (Italian Federation of Chefs in UK), Prof. Timothy Harlan (board certified internist, writer), Dr Rupy Aujla (MD and food blogger) and Sonia Dagnino (Imperial College London).

Health conditions arise from a combination of genetic and environmental factors, and of the latter, diet is widely considered to be one of the most crucial. Numerous studies have shown that a bad diet can alter metabolic functioning and lead to weight gain and neoplastic pathologies. Unfortunately, our diets are frequently subject to commercial interests that can disorient us in our search for proper nutrition. The guests at this seminar will discuss the role of the Mediterranean diet in a healthy lifestyle.


Coordinating office: Embassy of Italy (Scientific Office), in collaboration with Federazione Italiana Cuochi UK Delegation and Accademia della Cucina Italiana UK Delegation.
