• Your cooking course can build positive holiday memories;

• You will learn the importance of the Italian Diet Secrets: eating more vegetables, fuirts, nuts, seeds, more whole grains, legumes, fish, organic food and eating less red meat;

• You will learn the real Italian Diet, very different from what you see on an American-Italian Restaurant menu or English-Italian Restaurant;

• The Importance of balance quality and quantity: in Italy we simply balance the quantity of foods and quality ― first not too much fat, just a very little red meat, lots of fish, sometimes chicken, turkey, and other healthy meat like guinea fowl or rabbit, and just enough carbohydrates;

• You will use more unsaturated fat (extra virgin olive oil) than saturated fat (butter, palm oil, bacon fat, etc). Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the preferred one and we will use extensively in cooking and on salads;

• You will use the freshest ingredients we can, of course always in-season.
