Here is a sneak peek at what we have in store for you!
What Makes This Extravaganza Unique?
At the Academy of Culinary Nutrition, our goal is to educate you about food choices and how therapeutic foods can help support your health. For the last several years, I have hosted the Culinary Nutrition Conference, a full-day event that included a mix of pre-recorded interviews with experts along with live video talks and Q & As. This event was incredibly popular and well-attended, with many viewers reaping the benefits of the knowledge our guests had to share.
What I have come to learn through 10 years of owning my own business and 5 years of teaching an incredible array of students here at the Academy of Culinary Nutrition, is that it’s challenging to take your knowledge into the kitchen with you on a daily basis. In my quest to be of service to you in the best way I possibly can, I dreamed up the idea of doing a completely virtual, 100% live event where you can view nourishing recipes being made in real time and see how simple it is to do!
Our guests are dynamic, personable, and have a wealth of practical and actionable knowledge to share with you. This culinary nutrition extravaganza will help you explore the different kinds of meals you can make in your kitchen, and provide you with the recipes and skills to go forth and make it happen. I think this is going to be a truly fun day where anything can happen!
Also, everyone who has RSVP’d for the event will be voting on the topic and demonstration I’ll be presenting. At this point, it’s anyone’s guess what I’ll be cooking up! Click here to learn more and save your seat.
When I began teaching intimate classes in my own home kitchen a decade ago, I never imagined that one day my tribe would grow to nearly 1,500 Culinary Nutrition Experts in 53 different countries. My goal was simply to bring people together who shared interests, a passion for healthy living, love for the best food ever, and the desire to share this knowledge with those around them.
In a world that is increasingly drenched in crisis and tragedy, our tribe has become a force of change, positivity, and kindness. From raising money for worthy charities to offering scholarships to helping those that seek our guidance in a multitude of ways, our graduates are reaching every corner of their respective communities and that in turn is influencing the world.
Join us and take part in an entertaining and tasty day with people from around the world who love food and learning!
