Beyond the basics of healthy eating there lies a world of functional foods that offer enhanced nutritional benefit to optimize health and vitality. Many of these foods, flavors and cooking techniques have deep roots in culinary and medicinal traditions around the world. In a classroom setting, we will explore the science and benefits behind these nourishing cuisines and learn how to translate these foods and flavors into deliciously practical dishes that you will love to make and eat.
