In the framework of the Foodprint: The Mediterranean Diet Revisited project

Important Announcement: The workshop is now fully booked and we cannot accept any more registrations.

Within the framework of the project “Foodprint: The Mediterranean Diet Revisited” the Goethe-Institut Cyprus is organising a cooking and photography workshop for adults.

The Mediterranean Diet has been recognized by UNESCO as part of humanity's Intangible Heritage. It is based on seasonality and consists mostly of plant based foods, such as vegetables, grains, nuts, legumes and fruits, while it includes few or no animal products.

At this cooking workshop participants will have the opportunity to cook a couple of vegetarian recipes using seasonal and local produce. These recipes have been inspired by the Mediterranean diet and developed by Manolis Melissaris (the λoneλy oλive), who will lead the cooking workshop. Everyone who participates will receive a leaflet with the recipes prepared at the workshop, so that they can cook them themselves at home, as well as interviews and information on the Mediterranean diet.

Photographer Stelios Demetriou will give participants tips on what to pay attention to when photographing food with their mobile phones, both during the food preparation process as well as the finished dishes.

The cooking and photography workshop will take place in a professional kitchen, giving participants the opportunity not only to see what professional kitchens look like, but to prepare food in this environment themselves.

The workshop will end by enjoying the meal that was jointly prepared, accompanied by a glass of local wine.

Participation is free and possible only with registration for twelve people (ages 16+). Due to the nature of the workshop, registration is binding.

For registrations please contact or +357 22674606 until 8 February 2023.
Please do let us know of any dietary requirements, and we will do our best to accommodate them.

Workshop duration: approximately 3 ½ hours
