Cooking
Recorded: Oct 02, 2012 at 07:00 pm EDT
Greek country cooking is a paradigm for delicious, healthy, real, and simple food. The Greek kitchen boasts more main course vegetable dishes than almost any other cuisine in the Mediterranean. Many of these dishes have that elusive "craveability" factor, the ingredients and techniques that make for vegetables so luscious and comforting that even kids love them. My own experiences in the Greek country kitchen are rooted in my childhood memories and then, later, on the months I spend every year on Ikaria, a remote island in the eastern Aegean where my family is from and that happens to be a "Blue Zone," one of a handful of places on the planet renowned for the robust longevity of its inhabitants. It is here that I first learned the importance of seasonality, what real food tastes like, fresh from the field or garden, how the profuse use of olive oil and slow, patient cooking together create dishes that are both comforting and wholesome. But I have traveled widely in the Greek country kitchen, well beyond the rocky shores of Ikaria, and in my travels I've discovered the great wealth of regional Greek specialties and local ingredients, most of which are still terra incognita to an American audience, nutritional and flavor powehouses waiting to be discovered. In this talk, I will touch on the importance of vegetable cookery in the Greek country kitchen, how it is tied to the seasons and to local customs; I'll talk about regional Greek cuisines and food products and zero in on a handful of cheeses, olives, olive oils, and more, most of which are available Stateside. I will take viewers on a visual journey through the Country Cooking of Greece, share tips and recipes, and introduce a bevy of great Greek products.

Born in London and raised in Nigeria, Dr. Eno Nsima-Obot has over 23 years of experience in the health & wellness industry. She graduated in 1987 as one of the top ten graduating students from the University of Calabar, Nigeria, with several awards. When she worked as a primary care physician with a large multi-specialty group in the greater Chicago area, she was a recipient for the quarterly award for compassion. She is passionate about empowering patients to actively engage in their healthcare. This motivated her to train as a professional life coach through an ICF (International Coach Federation) certified program (Accomplishment Coaching) in 2010. This skill has enabled her to have more in-depth and meaningful conversations, even in her everyday encounters. She is an award-winning author of a book for people living with type 2 diabetes entitled, "Dr. Eno's A-to-Z Guide to Thriving with Type 2 Diabetes". She describes herself as a lifelong learner and has always been passionate about exploring and sharing ways to create and promote a balanced and healthy lifestyle. She describes herself as 'a Thrivor' after a brief brush with cancer several years ago. Following that, she made a personal commitment to more closely 'walk her talk.' This led her to discover the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM). Delighted that she had finally found her tribe, she completed the intense certification program and, in 2019, became one of only 1200 certified practitioners worldwide. She is committed to working with women over fifty with a particular focus on women of color, and those living with chronic illness, to optimize their health and wellbeing so that they can experience wholesome lives and fulfill their purpose on the planet.
