Since our Kick Off Meeting in Zaragoza, our coordinator has already had the chance to attend to two local radio stations in Aragón (Spain) to talk about the DELICIOUS project. Moreover, at local level, our project has appeared on newspapers.
On June 13th, he visited the studio of Onda Aragonesa, where he participated on the program Las mañanas de Onda Aragonesa. He talked about the objectives of DELICIOUS as well as about the project partners and about how important it is to make the diet and recipes attractive to children and adolescents to achieve more adherence to the Mediterranean Diet.
For example, it is a good idea to take the children to the local market for grocery shopping, so they can see where the food actually comes from and to enjoy local and seasonal ingredients. He highlighted the importance of sustainability when choosing recipes and ingredients; and the best solution for that is trying to buy at the local market or get information about the fruits, vegetables or fish and their season. This way, it is possible to reduce the individual carbon footprint and at the same time have a varied diet with seasonal recipes which change over the year.

Radio Nacional de España
On the 23rd of June, Juancho Pons also participated on a local news program from a national Spanish radio, Radio Nacional de España. He talked about the project on a section called Del campo a la mesa (from the field to the table) along with Ramsés González, a chef responsible of the restaurant CanCook, which fosters local products and recipes from Zaragoza with a twist of innovation.
They both emphasized how important it is to value local ingredients and honour our Mediterranean legacy through innovative recipes, both for the young population and for the older. Reformulating popular dishes and make them more modern, innovative, original and sustainable is a goal that both the CanCook restaurant and our DELICIOUS project have in common.
