“The Natural Chef course has changed my life

Completing my diploma has given me a massive confidence boost as I no longer find it daunting to cook with new ingredients. My family are delighted with my new culinary skills and they’re very willing to try the samples!

I was so inspired by what I learnt on CNM’s Nutrition for Everyday Living short course that l decided to train as a Natural Chef.

Designing therapeutic menus was fantastic

What I loved most about the course was learning how to combine different ingredients (ones you wouldn’t think would be compatible) to create amazing flavours. Designing meal plans for people with specific health conditions was one my favourite modules. I enjoyed the friendships in our class; there was a great mix of people.

The internship was an invaluable experience

Doing an internship in a commercial kitchen, where everything you’ve learnt slots into place, was an invaluable experience. I got brilliant feedback from where I worked. I plan to use my CNM Natural Chef qualification to help people fill up their fridges and show them how to cook food which supports their health.

If you want to kickstart your new career as a Natural Chef like Michelle did, come along to our next Open Day Event to learn how.
