Press Release

A World-First Mediterranean Diet Expo Comes to Brisbane

12 July 2018

Brisbane will be alive with the aromas, colours and sounds of traditional Mediterranean food and entertainment on October 21, as a world-first Mediterranean Diet Expo hits our city.

Brisbane-based authors of Mediterranean Eating, Desi Carlos and Lisa Peterson bring a Mediterranean marketplace to Brisbane’s Greek Club for a day of health seminars, cooking demonstrations, Greek food, wine, coffee and entertainment.

“We are so excited to be bringing you this Expo, it’s been a long time coming and is inspired by our passion for a traditional Mediterranean diet and its amazing health benefits,” says Desi.

Desi and Lisa who are also Accredited Practicing Dietitians, have seen first-hand how easily their clients have benefited from this way of eating.

“This diet is so simple, delicious and healthy, and we believe it is a great option for all Australians. It really complements the Australian lifestyle,” adds Lisa.

This world-first event showcases the best of Mediterranean – why this diet is so good for you, where to source amazing produce, and how to cook and prepare it.

“It’s not just about food though, we hope our city will be inspired by the culture of the Mediterranean lifestyle which is centred around good food, great company and enjoying life,” Desi says.
