What our students say
“On this program, you have the flexibility to study from anywhere, at any time and this is a huge bonus for people who have very active lifestyles but are still seeking to pursue their passions. I have found that the learning materials are well written and condensed in a way that made it easy for me to go through and retain the information.
I enjoy being able to do the practical assignments at my own rhythm, sometimes bashing 2 recipes at a time when I know I will not be able to dedicate any time during the week.”
