Cooking courses of  Macrobiotic Nutrition. Nutrition of Holy Mount Athos: “Mystic” recipes from Holy Mount Athos, the blessed place of the union of the Holy Spirit with his beloved “child”, Mother Earth.

  • The ingredients of the foods are the ones that determine the nutrition of our body, the cell renewal every passing minute, (our blood is completely renewed every 120 days, the lung epithelium every 15 days, the epithelium of the intestine every 5 days , liver cells every 5 months etc.), smooth functioning of the organs and biological systems of the human body, as well as the continuous production and metabolic activity of peptides of enzymes, hormones and metabolites that continuously regulate its function, Our mental state with the aim of homeostasis, renewal and mobilization of the inherent self-correcting and self-healing mechanisms, through our DNA (telomeres).Our cells are made up of “building materials” that come from our food only and continually use food ingredients to do their job. So our food is also the only factor in nourishing, functioning and renewing our cells.
  • In this three-hour workshop, we cook with rare traditional “mystical” recipes from Holy Mount Athos, a blessed place, a union of the Holy Spirit with his beloved “child”, Mother Earth. The monks of Mount Athos are deeply connected to the Creator and deeply connected to Mother Earth, honoring their Wisdom, Supreme Actions that generously offer deep and meaningful knowledge of human welfare. The monk at Holy Mount Athos prepares food with a devoted dedication honoring with gratitude the generosity of God and Nature. We use traditional Greek ingredients that contain the most nutritious, curative and rejuvenating substances, “quintessence”.
  • As we cook, at the same time we will learn the secrets of the most “powerful” foods, from the wonderful and incredibly rich Mediterranean plant kingdom. Argyro Asterataki will introduce us to the art and secrets of cooking magic and Vicky Stamouli will give us simple and meaningful information about the foods that contribute catalytically to the deep nourishment of our organism, to cell renewal, anti-aging and growth our vital energy.
  • We become a carefree team that cooks, learns, discusses and laughs, tastes new flavors and leaves creativity and imagination to the rhythm of our company. And … after completing our culinary quintessence, we will be relaxed and carefree on the terrace or in the garden to enjoy our wonderful creations, with good wine and frigid Sangria, in the already elevated mood of our company, silently, why not … and sipping … Our goal is our physical and mental nourishment!!!
