Episode 87: Explore the Ikarian Way of Eating with Diane Kochilas

The Greek Island of Ikaria is one of the “Blue Zones” where people are most likely to live long, healthy lives. So much of their longevity can be attributed to their way of eating. In this episode, Diane Kochilas, a New York City native whose family is from Ikaria, and who now lives there much of the year, explains the essence of the Ikarian way, and how to give traditional recipes a contemporary twist so they are do-able wherever you live.

Diane has been at the forefront of bringing healthy, delicious Greek and Mediterranean cuisine to a wide international audience for more than 25 years. She is the host and co-executive producer of the award winning PBS show, My Greek Table and she runs the Glorious Greek Cooking School on Ikaria. Diane has released 18 books on Greek cuisine and won 3 IACP Awards. Her latest is The Ikaria Way.
