The Mediterranean diet

The Mediterranean diet, also called Cretan diet, is a traditional way of living in many countries located close to this beautiful sea.  This diet is characterized by the high content of fruits and vegetables, grains, fish, a low consumption of red meats and milk products and emphasizes the use of olive oil.  Another benefit of the Mediterranean diet is certainly linked to the philosophy to MAKE TIME for eating and sharing a meal with family and friends.


Therefore, anything is a good excuse to add a splash of olive oil to all dishes.  Like salt and pepper, olive oil is a must in the kitchen and each variety has its significant characteristics and uniqueness to be discovered.
