The Mediterranean Diet
The Mediterranean Diet – from the Greek word díaita, lifestyle – is a social practice based on the set of skills, knowledge, practices and traditions ranging from the landscape to the cuisine, which in the countries of the Mediterranean culture concern the crops, harvesting, fishing, conservation, processing, preparation and, particularly, consumption.
Seven emblematic communities comprise the representation for this cultural heritage: Cyprus, Croatia, Spain, Greece, Italy, Morocco, and Portugal. These communities both protect the history and cultural assets of this heritage, as well as help to promote its values and practices throughout the world.
