By Emily Ford

KANNAPOLIS ó Free classes at the N.C. Research Campus next month will discuss popular nutrition trends, including the Mediterranean diet and the Slow Food movement.
Learn how science and cooking interact and why the kitchen table might be the most important place in your house.
The series, called the UNCG Nutrition Learning Laboratory hosted by the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, follows in the footsteps of similar seminars by other university partners at the N.C. Research Campus.
The classes are open to the public but registration is required. Classes begin June 4 and run for four consecutive Wednesdays at 7 p.m. in the Cabarrus Bank Building in Cannon Village.
Here’s the schedule:
– June 4 ó “Secrets of the Mediterranean Diet,” by Dr. Margaret Savoca.
Mediterranean populations have healthy hearts. Learn about the region’s food culture, culinary history, cooking practices, meal patterns and more, along with the science behind the trend toward Mediterranean foods.
– June 11 ó “Reducing Disease Risk: Small Changes Can Make a Big Difference,” by Dr. Martha Taylor.
Moving more and eating less can help reduce disease risk. But information can be overwhelming, and making changes can be tough. Learn how to take the first step.
– June 18 ó “Your Kitchen is a Science Laboratory in Disguise,” by Dr. Anne-Marie Scott.
In what promises to be a collision between Food Network hosts Alton Brown and Rachel Ray, this course will teach you to make healthier food choices, plus how to cut cooking and clean-up times.
– June 25 ó “Hurry Up and Tell Me How to Eat Slow Food!” by Dr. Anne-Marie Scott.
Learn about the international Slow Food movement and how it can change the way you buy, prepare and enjoy food. Find out how to bring back the kitchen table as the center of your family life.
