Introduction to the postgraduate course in healthy cooking

Beyond integrative and healthy cooking

We will show you how to create, innovate and take the lead in healthy cuisine in the 21st century

Healthy cooking is both the present and the future. It is integrated in the new consumption habits of the market and awareness on a global scale. It is a trend and a necessity, because a healthful way of living starts in the kitchen.

With a growing and increasingly demanding market, healthy cuisine is an essential pillar in the gastronomic offer of restaurants or services related to nutrition for customers who want to follow a plant based diet, or exclude certain foods for therapeutic needs.

It is time to break the conceptual barriers of diets, discover new ingredients, products and culinary techniques in order to create healthy dishes and change the current gastronomic offer towards an attractive, personalized, integrative, coherent and sustainable cuisine.

With three months of duration, through this program you will obtain a level of professional specialization within the world of healthy gastronomy integrating aspects such as healthy eating, vegetarian cuisine and vegan cuisine, nutrition applied to psychoneuroimmunology (PNI), the role of intestinal microbiota in health, sports nutrition, the benefits of raw food, or the therapeutic properties of Ayurvedic cuisine.

The PEC·H program in healthy and integrative cooking can be taken independently or as part of the combined CIB programs:
  1. SCD-D - Specialist Chef Diploma in Integrative & Healthy Cooking: for future chefs or nutrition professionals who want to embark on their path in gastronomy and specialize as a healthy cooking chef.
  2. GDC - Grand Chef Diploma Career: to become a chef with a global vision of cooking, choosing the healthy cooking course among several specializations.
With this healthy cooking course in Barcelona you will learn to create and innovate in the service of healthy cooking, working with optimal cooking techniques to preserve the nutritional properties of food and enhancing all its flavor. You will discover the culinary trends focused on health and wellness. You will learn the value of food origin, seasonality and sustainability, a healthy cuisine for people and the environment.

In the Integrative & Healthy Cooking program, the science of food in health is fused with the culinary practice, to turn it into gastronomy of physical, mental and social well-being.

You will create, innovate, plan, experiment, reflect and develop healthy cooking.

Through individual experience and teamwork, you will be able to act and solve real problems, applying the most scientific healthy knowledge to give immediate answers through the transformation of the kitchen.
