Culinary medicine has been found to enhance behavior change, improve health outcomes, and be even more effective than nutrition education alone.

Who We Are

Industry experts creating lasting change

Our team of experts includes a multidisciplinary collaboration of dietitians, medical doctors, social workers, chefs, and researchers. Collectively, this team has decades of experience innovating, leading, and evaluating culinary medicine activities.

What is culinary medicine?

Culinary medicine is a field of medicine that involves hands-on learning and the integration of food planning, preparation, and cooking with nutrition knowledge to achieve desired health outcomes. These fundamentals are at the forefront of our events and workshops.

How does it help your patients?

The effectiveness of culinary medicine has been demonstrated among people with chronic diseases like diabetes, cancer, and heart disease as well as for children, students, and employees. Our team helps build this body of evidence through practice and research and helps spread the word by facilitating workshops, lectures, and more.
