Beyond healthy cooking.

Here we 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 into new market consumer habits and awareness on a global scale.

With an increasingly demanding, growing market, one that is atomized and with pathological needs, healthy cuisine is a pillar in the gastronomic offering from restaurants or services related to nutrition. Whether as part of a restaurant, hospital, nutrition service, sports, medical or psychoneuroimmunology menu.

It is time to break down the conceptual barriers of diets to offer consumers organic benefits, discovering ingredients, products, time-honoured techniques and new trends in modern cuisine in order to create healthy dishes and change eating habits.

With a duration of just over three months, the postgraduate course is a module independent of the Gran Chef Diploma and integrates healthy eating, ways of living, products, their transformation and benefits for the social, cultural, nutritional and ecological contexts ahead.

Innovation will come from providing total knowledge of raw materials, as well as their value chain and transformation, through an infinite number of time-honoured techniques (such as fermentation), modern techniques (such as low temperature cooking) and techniques from other philosophies. We will merge the impact of food science on health with culinary practice to generate gastronomy based on physical, mental and social well-being.
