For anyone whose learning appetite has not been satisfied with one serving of Culinary Essentials, now is the time to continue on your culinary journey with Amanda! If you are seeking fresh, cutting-edge insights into recipe development/selection, meal planning and nutrition counseling solutions for clinical practice, this course is for you.

This unique course dives deep into evidence-based science from the disciplines of nutritional biochemistry, nutrigenomics, food science and the culinary arts. Using advanced insights from these four disciplines we create a new landscape upon which to build and optimize your nutrition recommendation. Use this unique inter-disciplinary approach to apply nutrition and culinary strategy to:


  • Oxidative stress
  • Inflammation
  • Biotransformation


  • Gastrointestinal Health
  • Immune Health
  • Cardiometabolic Health
  • Nuances of lipid and carb metabolism through the lens of genomics
  • Cancer
  • Bonus session: Genomics, hormone balance and bone health


  •  How to rewrite nutrition plans and recommendations through the lens of biochemistry
  •  How to use nutrients and bioactives to activate biochemical pathways that lead to homeostasis and health restoration
  • Write “culinary biochemistry” equations that deliver targeted nutrients to target systems in the body through the food you recommend
  • Translate complex ideas in nutrition science and nutrition biochemistry into actionable nutrition and culinary counseling strategy and meal planning
  • Get clear on which food, in which form to deliver the nutrition information you want
  • Advanced insights into food science to navigate the best culinary techniques for nutrient optimization
  • Case studies to illustrate nutrition thinking and culinary translation

Seven sessions

Our advanced course focuses on the integration of strategic nutrients and ingredients in clinical practice. Learn how to apply the frameworks and principles taught in the basic course to common nutrition and health situations in clinical practice. This applied course bridges cutting edge nutrition science and the basics of nutrigenomics to recipes, meal planning, and counseling.  This is the most advanced culinary nutrition course you can take for clinical practice. Amanda combines her background in functional nutrition and culinary genomics, creating a visionary course for nutrition and health experts practicing at the leading edge
