In his element: Alan Harding leads dinner at Carroll Gardens spa

for The Brooklyn Paper

Here’s a new approach to health and well-being: a fabulous meal.

Carroll Gardens’ Element Natural Healing Arts — which specializes in acupuncture, herbology and Ayurvedic facials — kicks off a new dinner series on Aug. 28 with a meal by Brooklyn culinary pioneer Alan Harding.

The wellness center plans to put its Zen-inspiring back deck to use hosting monthly five-course meals crafted by some of the city’s leading chefs (at least until the weather turns nippy).

“Health comes form total well being — these type of events open the spirit a bit more. Especially as New Yorkers, we’re so closed off,” said Maria Nieto, the center’s classes and events coordinator. “We always wanted to do something where people could come break bread, meet each other and sit down for great meal.”

Harding’s inaugural meal will feature greenmarket gazpacho with lemon balm and cured Morrocan lemon marinated lamb with fennel, cucumber and couscous, among other enticing edibles.

In September, former “Top Chef” hottie and current Melt chef Mark Simmons will do the honors.

For $50, the dinners are open to anyone and everyone, but hurry there’s only 30 slots. After all, a great meal makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.

For reservations, call Element Natural Healing Arts at (718) 855-4850 by Aug. 26. Meals are BYOB.
