What is Mediterranean Diet based on?
To put it simply, a Mediterranean diet is the diet of our grandparents and our great grandparents. It’s a way of preparing and enjoying food that has been shared and passed down for generations.
The method of preparing these foods is also often a product of the climate of the region. These recipes rely on using the ingredients in the season they naturally grow, or in their naturally preserved forms. This is why you often see cured, dried and preserved foods in the pantries of the Mediterranean.
This lifestyle celebrates fresh food while also honoring the history of the region. It pays homage to times where refrigeration wasn’t possible, and protein and nutrients were preserved for winter.
The goal is not to count calories, grams of fat, carbs or sugar, but to enjoy simple ingredients in their basic nutrient-dense form. It is enjoy the natural flavors of the Mediterranean. This way of eating is now famous around the world because of its health benefits. Also it gives you the joy of the Mediterranean to any table.
This is the heart behind the products that we are sharing with you here at Deliart. Our products are healthy and natural and celebrate the food that we grow and eat every day in this part of the world.

Spanish Food at the Forefront of World Cuisine
Now that you are familiar with the basics of the Mediterranean Diet and traditional Spanish cooking, it’s time to introduce new ways that Spanish restaurants are reinventing cuisine.
The avant-garde cuisine arose from a new generation of chefs’ desire to transform cooking from something of a necessity to an art form.
The goal is to provide an experience involving all the senses through innovation, creativity, and technology. This concept is recognized worldwide with Spain leading the path to new culinary styles and gastronomical inventions. This can range from preparing traditional ingredients in a new way or even including new ingredients like seaweed or bioluminescent phytoplankton to surprise the palate. This is a spectacular and healthy way to introduce new products from the sea.
As we mentioned before, our Mediterranean diet thrives on the use of every ingredient to its fullest potential.
Spanish chefs are searching for new ways to reinvent flavors and textures through deconstruction techniques. This concept is not new because it separates the ingredients to allow for new combinations of flavors and textures. These techniques and creative innovations bring new characteristics to traditional products. This way you can never tire from simple ingredients because there is always a new way to experiment in the kitchen.
You can find many restaurants with Spanish chefs experimenting in the kitchen which have been awarded Michelin Stars. It’s truly worth a visit to experience Spain’s avant-garde cuisine.
