Culinary nutrition education doesn’t have to be boring. In fact, it should never be boring. Learning about food should be colorful, playful, and most importantly, delicious! Whether you’re taking a hands-on group or private class, or learning from a demonstration, you should feel engaged and inspired.
Culinary nutrition classes are a great way to get your hands dirty without any pressure for perfection. During these sessions, you will learn about the therapeutic properties of the food that you are making and consuming. Real food application is the best way to retain newfound nutrition knowledge.
