“Our show features recipes from the Mediterranean Diet, with its high proportion of oily fish, fruit, vegetables, unrefined cereals and olive oil, and low levels of red meat and sugar. This diet not only contributes to general good health, it also has the ability to slow the advance of cognitive decline.

The Food For Thought exhibit illustrates these recipes with fascinating art created by people living with memory loss and dementia.  Their paintings invite us to see through their eyes as they transform food into images of wonder.”
