The Mediterranean Diet is more than just a diet; it’s a lifestyle. Join Capital Cooking with Lauren DeSantis at the Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show on November 7-8, 2009 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. DeSantis will teach workshops demonstrating the structures of this flavorful diet while using Mediterranean staples such as olive oil, herbs and wine.
DeSantis will lead a workshop called, “Bringing the Mediterranean Diet to Your Plate” where she will discuss the principles of the diet followed by a tasting of Mediterranean products (including Alili and J.D. Gourmet). Throughout episodes of Capital Cooking, DeSantis has presented various aspects of the Mediterranean Diet. This workshop gives an up close view of the structure of Mediterranean meals and the differences between Mediterranean cuisines by region as well as some entertaining tips for a Mediterranean party (with place settings from Bee Bop).
