Cooking in the Blue Zone

Location: The Cooking School (upstairs from Farley), Building 602

Time11:00 am – 2:00 pm

The concept of Blue Zones came about through the demographic research of Gianna Pet and Michel Poulain, which was outlined in the Journal of Experimental Gerontology. Exploring the habits of areas of extreme longevity became the basis for further study. Cooking in the Blue Zone means minimizing sugar, dairy and animal proteins. Join us for an exploration of a Blue Zone kitchen as a part of our Wellness Retreat.

Green Beans with Tomato Shallot Vinaigrette

Heirloom Bean Salad with Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette
