As important as fitness training is to a healthy lifestyle, most in the industry will agree that what and how you eat is as much as 80% of the equation. I will always recommend a client visit their physician and a dietitian or nutritionist prior to making any dramatic change to their lifestyle but as important as that is, these professionals can only provide you the guidelines you should follow when it comes to your diet… Putting them into practice is another matter entirely!
When I went to culinary school, the first thing my chef told us was that cooking or learning how to cook, has absolutely nothing to do with recipes… A quick look around the room told me that everyone was just as bewildered by that comment as I was. Once the shock of this new revelation wore off, he proceeded to explain that cooking is about “technique,” and recipes are about “ingredients.” Once you learn the technique of “braising” for example, you now have the skill necessary to make very different dishes such as Yankee Pot Roast, Chicken Cacciatore, Beef Short Ribs and Coq au Vin just to name a few. Since the technique for making these dishes is exactly the same, the ingredients are really not that important. This concept approach is true for all cooking methods and is the premise for what I will teach you… Once you learn the technique, the recipes are only as limited as your imagination and it is your imagination that is going to put those dietary recommendations into practice!
The idea is to make this fun so I’ve categorized the culinary training sessions by cooking principals and techniques so pick and choose what you would like to learn from the list below based on what interests you most. There are however, essential skills that you will need to know for each of the sessions to follow so they will all be covered in the initial “Healthy Cooking Fundamentals” Session. But not to worry, it is your first session where you will learn how much fun cooking really is!
Your Diet and Its Potential Impact on Your Health!
I recommend that you follow the sessions in order since many of the techniques you will learn build upon the next, but feel free to choose whichever interests you most. Chefs famous for adapting so I’ll be more than happy to customize a program just for you.
