Mid Coast Hospital to sponsor “Global Feast: Blue Zones Kitchen” March 12

On Thursday, March 12, Mid Coast Hospital is excited to sponsor Global Feast: Blue Zones Kitchen at Frontier.

Part of the Frontier Studios Series, Global Feast: Blue Zones Kitchen will feature David McLain, the photographer behind The New York Times best-selling cookbook The Blue Zones Kitchen: 100 Recipes to Live to 100.

Through research, writer and Blue Zones founder Dan Buettner discovered five places around the world where people live the longest and are healthiest: Okinawa, Japan; Sardinia, Italy; Nicoya, Costa Rica; Ikaria, Greece, and Loma Linda, California. To create The Blue Zones Kitchen, David and Dan traveled to each location, dubbed "blue zones,” and documented the recipes and dietary traditions of the longest-lived people on Earth.

Community members are invited to join David at Frontier as he shares stories, photography, and tastings of some "longevity food” featured in the book.

Global Feast: Blue Zones Kitchen will run from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m. on March 12. Tickets are $30 and include a drink ticket, food tastings, and a presentation by David McLain. Gulf of Maine Books will also be present to sell copies of The Blue Zones Kitchen: 100 Recipes to Live to 100, and David will be available for signing.

Mid Coast Hospital is proud to partner with Frontier in promoting lifelong wellness through healthy eating, and in turn, supporting the health of our community.
