"A wonderful book about the food and lifestyle I grew up with – eating like our grandparents did, with the emphasis on flavour, which is the key to a happy, healthy diet. Fantastico!" Gennaro Contaldo

The secret to a long, healthy life? It's really very simple...

Giulia Crouch always knew there was something magical about the life of her Sardinian grandparents, so she was not surprised when Sardinia's Nuoro mountain region was identified by scientists as one of five 'blue zones' around the world. These are places where people exhibit remarkable longevity and experience little of the disease which plagues our modern society, such as obesity, cancer, type 2 diabetes and dementia.

There is a host of reasons why the blue zoners are thought to live so long and so well - including supportive social networks, unintentional exercise, plenty of sunshine - but it is what they eat and
how they eat that, in Giulia's view, is the most important. Her grandparents did not eat anything because it was 'healthy'. They ate for flavour and pleasure: simple, delicious food that was nourishing without even trying. Food for them was much more than bodily fuel ­- it was about family, creativity, love, culture, identity, mindfulness, expression and joy.

In
The Happiest Diet in the World, Giulia takes us on a culinary journey to these long-lived communities, where instincts and taste buds rule. With the help of top experts in science and nutrition, she identifies what the different cuisines of these places have in common and why their diets may be keeping them so healthy and happy.

With fascinating insights into everything from fasting to meat eating, sugar to wine-drinking, gut health and the incredible power of beans, along with 50 recipes inspired by Giulia's grandparents' cooking, this book shows us how to incorporate the key aspects of the super-agers' diet into ours and how to reconnect with an instinctive ancient wisdom that, because of the powerful pull of the food industry, we are in danger of losing

"A brilliantly informative call to arms for a return to uncomplicated, home-cooked food, which should be essential reading for everyone, young and old. We need to come together as a society to rid ourselves of our unhappy relationship with food and reconnect with true nourishment." Francesco Mazzei
