Introduction to the postgraduate course in healthy cooking

Beyond 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 can be seen in new market consumer habits and awareness on a global scale.

In a growing and increasingly demanding market, one that is diverse and that needs health-inspired solutions, healthy cooking has become an essential consideration when planning and preparing the food offered in restaurants or nutrition services, whether they form part of a hospital sports medical or psychoneuroimmunology center.

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

At just over three months long, this program forms part of the training on two of the CIB's combined programs. It allows you to specialize in the world of healthy cooking and learn about aspects such as healthy eating, lifestyles, products, their transformation and the benefits for the social, cultural, nutritional and ecological spheres that we are working towards.

The following combined programs include the Postgraduate Course in Integrative Healthy Cooking:
  1. Grand Chef Diploma: To become a chef with a global understanding of how kitchens operate by choosing from a variety of specialization courses.
  2. Specialist Chef Diploma in Integrative and Healthy Cooking: For future chefs and nutritionists who want to kick start their career in healthy cooking..

    You will learn to innovate by gaining comprehensive knowledge of raw materials, their value chain and transformation, and by practicing an infinite number of time-honored techniques (such as fermentation), modern techniques (such as low temperature cooking) and techniques from other cultures and schools of thought. We will combine the impact food science has on health with culinary practice in order to generate proposals that benefit physical, mental and social well-being.
