NUTRITION TRAINING FOR LIFE
The Academy of Culinary Nutrition, the school that I run, is an online education destination with the primary mission of providing resources and training for health, nutrition and culinary enthusiasts to become leaders and teachers in their respective communities. It is home to the flagship program, the Culinary Nutrition Expert Program.
We proudly celebrate a global tribe of over 1,800 Certified Culinary Nutrition Experts in 57 countries.
The collective goal of the Academy and our Certified Experts is to create a positive global impact by teaching, sharing and living what we do best—creating, cooking, and eating the best food in the world, while giving back in the process.
I first began offering cooking classes in my loft-style kitchen in Toronto’s west-end neighbourhood of Parkdale in 2008. Shortly afterwards, I launched the Culinary Nutrition Expert Program, starting with just 12 students around my kitchen table.
As demand for classes grew and the walls of my kitchen could expand no further, I took the leap to online teaching and began transforming my live, in-person classes into video-based courses for a global audience.
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.
All of our courses are created with you in mind. We want to help you develop your skills so you can best serve yourself, your family and your friends, as well as your clients, patients and students.
New in 2018, we began offering the opportunity for our graduates to become Academy of Culinary Nutrition Certified Instructors. We now have over 200 instructors around the world teaching live, in-person classes inspired by the original classes I started teaching back in 2008.
