Vincent Della Polla is a nutrition expert and the Executive Chef at Pritikin Longevity Center. For more than 40 years, the internationally renowned Pritikin Longevity Center has served as the leading, medically supervised wellness destination in the world. Improving health from coronary heart disease to diabetes type 2 and other health concerns and addresses weight loss journeys, the program immerses guests in a life-calibrating educational journey embedded in longevity-rich dining, culinary classes, private physician consultations, weight-loss workshops, diabetes and hypertension management and life-changing results, longevity living education and psychological wellbeing.
Located in Miami, Florida, nestled within an exquisite 650-acre, four-star resort with beautiful pools, championship golf courses, spa and other world-class amenities, a Pritikin health and wellness retreat offers something for those seeking to enjoy the greatest duration of life.
With his down-to-earth, Philly-born style, Vince has since 2007 taught thousands in his cooking classes at Pritikin that healthy eating is not just delicious, it’s easy. “If you can chop, you can cook!” he encourages his students daily, and they all enjoy the results – dishes like Seared Salmon with Arugula, Mushrooms, and Balsamic Vinegar; Salad with Carrot, Pineapple, and Fresh Mint; and Mango Parfait.
Though low in sodium, sugar, and fat, everything that comes out of Vince’s kitchen is bursting with deep rich flavor.
Vince honed his culinary skills at Johnson and Wales University as well as in several restaurants nationwide. From pizzerias to P.F. Chang’s to resorts, Vince has done it all. But what he loves most is his current work at Pritikin because “there’s nothing more rewarding than having our guests come up to me and say, ‘I can do this! I like what I’m eating! You’ve saved my life!’ I never get tired of hearing those words.”
