Her focus celebrates and helps protect Crete’s cultural and culinary heritage. The concepts of the Mediterranean Diet originated in Crete. Chef Rose, with her CCS initiatives, demonstrates that Cretan cuisine is not just a diet, but is a way of life that has much to offer our ongoing pursuit of healthy and sustainable approaches to eating. In this concise book, Rose shares strategies for applying the celebrated concepts of Cretan cuisine wherever you live. The book includes recipes with gorgeous photos of culinary treasures amid the magnificent landscape of the isle of Crete.

Rose has received numerous awards from National Geographic, the United Nations and many other organizations for her success in creating sustainable travel/community-based tourism and culinary projects that bring focus to the expanding inquiry into sustainability. Her book will be available for sale. Proceeds benefit ongoing CCS initiatives. Chapter preview:
