Happy 3rd Birthday, To Us!

Happy 3rd Birthday, To Us!

It’s hard to believe it’s been three years since we launched the Academy of Culinary Nutrition. Time has flown in the best possible way and we are incredibly proud of everything our fantastic tribe has achieved (we suppose all parents say that, don’t they?).

We’ve come a long way since our humble beginnings. Meghan Telpner, our founder + director, launched the Culinary Nutrition Program in 2011 starting with just 12 students around her kitchen table.

As demand for her classes grew and the walls of her 600 square foot loft could expand no further, she took the leap to online teaching and began recording her programs for a global audience. Meghan gathered the best team she could find and began building the world’s first online school for culinary nutrition.

The fall of 2013 saw the inaugural launch of the online Culinary Nutrition Expert Program with 100 students from around the world, and with it, a paradigm shift – this knowledge could finally be shared far and wide. In 2014, the program moved to its own home online and became the official school you know today, The Academy of Culinary Nutrition. You can learn more about the school’s history here.

We have trained 1100 students in more than 40 countries and built an amazing community in the process.
