SIRLEY KASTON RECIPE3: Honey and Bee Pollen

Here is another participant to our Food Blogger Contest “A menu for the Mediterranean Diet” II edition: Sirley Kaston from Instanbul/TURKEY. In fact we had many food blogger from Turkey this year: thanks to our Turkish partner!

According to the Contest Regulations, each food blogger should have proposed a menu made by 3 recipes, to reinterpret in an original manner a “Mediterranean style” convivial meal:
FIRST RECIPE: Appetizer or first course including vegetables among ingredients;
SECOND RECIPE: second or main course;
THIRD RECIPE: dessert based on fruit.

That is to say that recipes needed to be inspired from the principles and values belonging to the Mediterranean Diet, recognized Unesco Intangible Cultural Heritage on November 16, 2010 and realized with the ingredients composing the Mediterranean diet food pyramid created by Ancel Keys. Recipes have also to contain extra virgin olive oil coming from at least one of RECOMED countries.
