Mediterranean Kitchen

The feeling of lightness, peace, and freedom created by the scent of redbud, bougainvillaea, lavender, and citrus, dancing with the lovely sea breeze… Mediterranean cuisine is like a warm wind blowing with a synthesis of thousands of images giving us a sense of freedom with its visual feast, delicate flavours, scents, and memorable tastes. Mediterranean cuisine is a colourful table set in the garden for some…On one side all kinds of seafood, especially fish and shrimp, on the other side….plenty of greenery and mozzarella….and delicious home-made wines accompanying you… The most exquisite tastes of Mediterranean cuisine along a sophisticated menu of world-class wines and elegant cocktails in our stylish and contemporary bar, fine dining experience is accessible in London at Scala restaurant in Orpington.

The Mediterranean Basin, located at the intersection of the three continents of the ancient world, Asia, Europe, and Africa, has been the source of many civilizations from the past to the present and has incorporated the most privileged social, ethnic, and cultural riches. Mediterranean cuisine has succeeded in conveying its delicious secrets, distilled with the accumulation of this ancient culture, from generation to generation. Just as there is no single definition of the Mediterranean, it would also be insufficient to mention a single Mediterranean cuisine.

Green vegetables growing in the warm Mediterranean climate; wild herbs like basil, thyme, and rosemary inspiring different sauces; fruits such as citrus, grapes, melons, watermelons, strawberries, apples, figs, pears, and peaches in addition to a wide variety of cereals and different types of cheeses, yogurt, spices, wines, and liqueurs form the basis of this cuisine. The weight of red meat is preferably balanced with the colourful world of seafood. And it is the ancient call of olive oil in Mediterranean cuisine encouraging all these flavours to a harmonious union.

Mediterranean cuisine, rich in aroma and flavour, reflects the taste and spirits of people living in harmony with nature. Mediterranean Diet consists of elements of traditional Mediterranean cuisine, blended with the lifestyles of people of the region over the years, and become a versatile and healthy universal diet model today. A recent research conducted by a group of experts from the University of Florence indicates that Mediterranean-style dietary habits are likely to reduce the risks of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and cancer.
