Join Award-Winning Author, Chef, TV Host and Mediterranean Diet Ambassador Amy Riolo as we explore the Italian roots of the Mediterranean lifestyle.

We'll take a virtual culinary tour back to ancient times to learn how the tenants of "the world's healthiest" diet were upheld in Italy's Magna Grecia. Like the Greeks, the ancient Romans also viewed food as a source of medicine, pleasure and currency.
