Cooking Classes FAQ

Who runs the classes?
All our facilitators are fully qualified Nutritionists and /or Dietitians. Everyone holds bachelor’s degrees and/or master’s degrees in science or health science, majoring in Nutrition and/or Dietetics so our team is fully qualified to answer questions about food and nutrition. This way you are guaranteed of receiving the very latest, evidence based scientific information. As for the cooking, we are all passionate foodies and have years of cooking up healthy and delicious meals and presenting them to a wide variety of audiences.

How are they different to other cooking classes?
We want you to learn not just new recipes but how your food can help to improve your health, how to plan for your weekly meals, how to cook when you are time poor and the health benefits of the ingredients in our recipes. You will leave our classes with some newfound knowledge and confidence to shop, cook and eat your way to better health. Our recipes are priced to show you that eating well is very affordable. Oh, did we mention the recipes are family friendly too?

Do health rebates apply?
Some health funds may offer rebates on some of our classes run by our Dietitians. Private consultations should be eligible for health rebates, but we recommend to double check with your health insurer.

What if I have a food allergy?
Some of our recipes may contain food allergens and as a nutrition company, we fully understand the health risk. If you have any food allergies or intolerances, please let us know at the time of booking and we will do our best to ensure your safety.

Do we get to cook?

Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man how to fish and he eats for life!
