The Blue Zones and National Geographic together discovered the Ikaria Island as one of the Blue Zones in the World. The Karimalis family was chosen to appear in the Netflix movie and tell their story. Now, they are on a world tour and will stop here in Carlsbad. If you are not familiar with the Blue Zones, many books have been written by author Dan Buettner. Here are two of the latest books that he has published.

Our classes will feature plant based foods, found on the island of Ikaria. From homemade phyllo, bean dishes, vegetable soups and stews, with simply made desserts. Afterwards, a presentation will be given to familiarize you to the clean lifestyle they live by in Greece. This is a unique event to help build a healthy lifestyle community, and improve one’s health with the tips and lessons they will be introducing!

Purchase Tickets Here!

We are limited to two nights, so please register early for your tickets. This will be a night to remember as we eat our way to good health!
