Blue Zones Project Inspired Cooking Class - Dishes from Ikaria, Greece

Blue Zones Project is a community health initiative introduced in the South Bay through Beach Cities Health District in 2010. In 2016, the Beach Cities (Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach & Redondo Beach) became a certified Blue Zones Community®. Through innovative partnerships with local organizations, restaurants and grocery stores like Lazy Acres Market in Hermosa Beach, Blue Zones Project empowers people to make healthier choices inspired by places around the world where people live to 100.

The Pier Room at Lazy Acres Market is officially open for cooking classes! Sign up for one cooking class or the whole series which is inspired by the blue zones regions of the world where people live to 100. Students will have access to their own burner and cooking station while they follow along with the chefs to create wholesome and healthy meals that not only taste good but are good for you.

Discover how eating whole foods, mostly plants in blue zones areas like Ikaria, contribute to a healthy lifestyle. Join us in our immersive cooking class. Delve into the intriguing Greek traditions of this renowned community, home of 10,000 residents who not only live long lives but also suffer the world’s lowest rates of dementia. Celebrate the love of cooking with a wholesome Summer Ikarian Stew, fresh Ikarian Tabouli Salad, and delicious Honey Cookies. Uncover the secrets of every dish through exploring the Ikarian diet and discover the recipe for a long and healthy life.
