Mr. Eleftherios Angelopoulos, the Greek ambassador in Ottawa, said that “a diet based on Greek products like olive oil combines good taste with good effects on our health.”

Christine Cushing talked about the effects of some Greek products like olive oil, oregano, dakos, crocus and Greek wine. At the same time the attendants could taste the “vivid” Greek cuisine of the famous Canadian chef, as well as tasting Greek wine. During the event, professors Dr. Andrew Pipe and Dr. Alexander Dick mentioned the significance of the Mediterranean diet from the medical side. Furthermore, the Greek products which are exported in Canada received exposure.

The purpose of the event was to raise money in order to purchase a new cardiac MRI machine for the Heart Institute of the University of Ottawa.
