The Blue Zones Kitchen

The Blue Zones Kitchen fuses scientific reporting, National Geographic photography and 100 recipes that may help you live to 100. The Blue Zones’ food tradition is going the way of the dodo bird, thanks to the encroachment of the American Food Culture. This book captures the way of eating that yielded the statistically longest-lived people and explains, in some detail, why that food has enabled populations to elude the chronic disease scourge that has befallen Americans.

New York Times best-selling author Dan Buettner has traveled the world and visited tiny kitchens from Ikaria to Okinawa to document the recipes and dietary traditions he learned along the way. Stunning photography from National Geographic photographer David McLain accompanies the stories and recipes passed down from the longest-lived people in the world.
