Group classes

In the group classes we start by covering the basics of healthy eating and cooking with whole foods and then go on to explore different subjects in more detail.

Please click here to see the programme of courses.

Each class includes practical cookery, with students preparing and eating their own colourful, tasty, satisfying and healthy dishes; and teaching of the latest up-to-date information on nutrition and health.  

The cost is £250 per day (10:00 to 17:00) and includes a 3-course lunch with 7-8 different dishes and a detailed information pack to take away.

What is involved?

Each group class involves 100% hands-on practical cooking in a small supervised group.  The teaching of theory is done using clear, easy-to-follow presentations and handouts with plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion.  Through practical cooking, theory and discussions participants learn how to create health and well being for mind and body.
