Author Talk: Nancy Harmon Jenkins on the Mediterranean Diet
The Mediterranean diet has been hailed by everyone from food writers to nutritional scientists to cardiologists as a great way for Americans to get a grip on better health for themselves and their families. But what is it exactly? And how can you translate it into good food for yourself and your loved ones? Join food writer Nancy Harmon Jenkins, author of The New Mediterranean Diet, a nationally recognized authority on the subject (and also on one of its prime components, extra-virgin olive oil), as she explains what the diet is and what it’s not–and especially why it’s not a restrictive “eat-this-not-that” kind of diet, but rather an entirely easy and delicious way to bring good health into your kitchen and onto your table. And to have fun doing so. Nancy will have copies of The New Mediterranean Diet and also of her more recent Virgin Territory available for sale and signing.
