Carrie Keys D’Andrea is the Ancel and Margaret Keys’ daughter. They were the pioneers of the Mediterranean Diet and the studies on Epidemiology. 

She was interviewed on April 2015 in Saint Paul (Minnesota). She tells how it is to grow up with two experts of nutrition that were around the world, between Japan and Finland, Minnesota and Southern Italy, to compare the diet of the different populations studied.

The American spouses rediscovered the Mediterranean Diet, proclaimed UNESCO heritage on November 16, 2010, in Naples and later during the ’60 in Cilento. Carrie’s memories are tied to that historical period and that land that had hosted her parents for more than forty years. She is an American woman who looks at Cilento, through the stare of her parents, as an Eldorado of an authentic food and life data-style far away from the American “society of consumptions”.
