This course was great. The blend of culinary hands-on learning mixed with case studies and general information about functional nutrition/medicine was just right. I have been inspired to continue to pursue this specialty and intend to continue learning more about how to apply this new knowledge.

This course exceeded my expectations and left me eager to learn more and with a desire to move forward with my aspirations in nutrition and culinary art. It enabled me to embrace nutrition and what it means to me I a new light. For that and so much more I am fortunate.

The workshop was definitely thought-provoking. I found it challenging to my traditionally trained sensibilities and that was a good thing.

I was so thrilled to attend a course that combined the nutrition and the culinary world. Then the education in functional food (restoring health) inspired to take my practice to another level.

This was truly the best course I have ever taken during my years as a Registered Dietitian

This course exceeded my expectations. It reminded me of why I wanted to become a dietitian!
