TOBI (Science meets culinary art) // Event
On 19th May 2011 the FP7 funded research project “TOBI” organised a unique dissemination activity aimed at promoting awareness of the growing problem of obesity and how to tackle it: a cooking event with the famous Austrian chef Johanna Maier and the scientist Prof. Thomas Stulnig combined results from current research with the practise of healthy cooking.
Ms Maier, the two Michelin-starred chef considered as one of the leading in Austria (four toques by Gault Millau), explained the correct planning and preparation of a healthy 5 course meal to an audience including the Austrian giant slalom champion Philipp Schörghofer, a nutrition expert from the Austrian Ministry of Health and other stakeholders, in her purpose-built cooking school in Filzmoos. Prof. Stulnig, the coordinator of TOBI and a renowned expert in the field of obesity research explained how a well-balanced diet should be devised, according to the latest research and with particular reference to the TOBI project. In an entertaining dialogue both protagonists gave useful tips on how to improve the daily diet while their captive audience put their advice into practice.
