In February, researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) released a study that connected a Mediterranean-style diet with lower risk factors for cardiovascular disease, i.e., obesity or high blood pressure.
It’s no wonder, then, that Providence Hospital’s upcoming “Providence Cooks!” culinary class will highlight Mediterranean meals. On Aug 5, dietitian Kay MacInnis and Chef Brandon Carn will teach participants how to cook a dish similar to fish Provencal, which is made using fish — red snapper, mahi-mahi or black sea bass — sautéed with olives, capers, tomatoes and wine, to name a few ingredients. The class starts at 6 p.m. and tickets are $20. Registration is required — call 1-877-256-5381.
