Brazilian-born Bernando LaPallo has lived in New York for 90 years and, astonishingly enough, was alive for 24 years in addition to that. Global Freedom Movement Media caught up with him for a chat and to pick the super-centenarian’s still supple brain for his secrets to living a long, healthy and fulfilling life. It all started as a boy with the sensible insights from Bernando’s father, a doctor, who inculcated the values and habits that yet still guide Bernando over nine decades later.

Among his stalwart resources for longevity and youthfulness are—you’ll be pleased to hear—olive oil, chocolate, garlic, cinnamon, and the humble blueberry.

We are really pleased to have gotten the chance to speak with Bernando the week in which we he turned 114. Still spry, still sound-of-mind, and retaining an endearing sense of humour, we invite you to join us for our interview with an inspirational man of purpose at 9 pm Sydney time at globalfreedommovement.org/media


More background on Bernando:

I was trained in cooking in Paris at the Sorbonne School of Culinary Arts graduating in 1928. We had to learn about the origins of food like barley, coconut and the like, and their uses which is something that is not taught in America today. In addition, I spent time in three or four different restaurants learning methods of preparation that were particular to each establishment to get a feel for different approaches. I have been blessed by God with a seventh sense. I do not need to taste food while I am preparing it. I rely on my keen sense of smell and my eyes. Nine times out of ten I can tell what is in a dish just by smelling it. Now, I don’t expect you to be able to do this like I do but if you take your time and don’t rush, your food will come out well. Time is very important.
