The Natural Chef – Diploma

The curriculum in this training supports the skills and thinking for anyone wanting to work in the food industry. Knowing how to troubleshoot, invent, and create a personal style with the simplest, cleanest, ingredients in the most efficient, cost productive way is useful for everyone who works with food.

This program prepares graduates to have a thorough experience of plant-based ingredients, beyond the usual dishes that are popular. They will have tools to up-grade well-known dishes and translating traditional recipes.

The Food Photography lesson prepares students to use quality images from their assignments for social media and their professional portfolios.

In addition, the training prepares a chef to know how healing food feels in their body and the rhythm of a professional kitchen. Over 9 months many graduates report health changes and more control over their lifestyle.

Lab Sessions & Weekly Meetings
The teacher to student ratio is one teacher for up to six students in each group. There are 30 weekly virtual meetings in the training period. Here we practice speaking and thinking in The Language of intuitive Cooking.


Woven throughout the training 36 hours of  scheduled, live, virtual labs clarify and challenge student’s techniques and understanding of the creative process. 

These lab sessions are well designed to experience learning from your kitchen.
