Natural Gourmet Institute is a professional culinary school with an interdisciplinary curriculum focused on cooking whole ingredients in health-supportive ways. Chef’s Training students learn principles of culinary technique, food science, fundamentals of nutrition, as well as the connection between food and healing. They also learn to integrate numerous approaches to diet and health within the framework of NGI’s criteria for quality food selection.
Our program is mostly plant-based, with some instruction in sustainable seafood, poultry, and meat. Strong emphasis is placed on whole grain and gluten-free baking techniques. Students also learn to convert traditional recipes with refined sweeteners and flours to more whole, healthier versions. Our Chef’s Training Program is one of the most well rounded approaches to culinary education available.

Plus, she adds some distinctly delectable twists to make vegan Italian cuisine that is every bit as delicious as the originals. The evening will include samples of some of Chloe’s favorite recipes, a cooking demonstration, and a chance to win great raffle prizes. Seating is limited - RSVP today.
