Information about the ingredients
The difference between herbs and spices is given by their look: spices come from different parts of a plant (the flowers, buds, rhizomes, roots, bark, seeds etc.) and are characterised by their high percentage of aromatics which are mainly due to essential oils and resinous substances; the so called aromatic herbs, instead, are cultivated or uncultivated species used mainly for their leaves.

Selection
Contestants will have to send their recipes by and no later than March 16th 2012 at 12PM (Italian time) by email to: info@legatumori.genova.it or by mail to

LILT Dieticians LILT – Dr Gloria Noli and Dr Miriam Cornicelli

They will judge the recipes according to the following criteria:
Bearing with the Contest theme
Originality of the dish
Healthiness of the ingredients used
Anticancer properties of the ingredients used

The submitted recipe should work on the presumption that loving and taking care of oneself begins with what we eat: the seasons, the specific characteristics and the variety of all the ingredients that we find in nature are the greatest gift that we have in our kitchens!
