"I enjoyed the course very much. I learnt the importance of good fats in the diet and how to make sourdough bread. I was introduced to kefir, how to make it, and its many uses and health benefits. Excellent food served with emphasis on the importance of using good fresh organic ingredients in the meals. Since being introduced to kefir I have started a few people on kefir, they have all reported on the benefits and are now making it themselves!"

"I enjoyed the course very much. I cannot recommend it highly enough, loved every minute. Colette Joe and Lorraine are the dream team! The practical work of baking, cooking and chopping together, I was 100% satisfied. A perfect balance between theory and practice, practical and realistic. Colette is a fountain of knowledge. I feel much better since I started the course . I am inspired to nurture myself and my children."

"Just Fantastic! I learnt lots I did not know before, lots of making and doing everything- sauerkraut, all the ferments, butter, sourdough bread etc. I found the constant re doing of things especially the sourdough bread, very helpful as new stuff takes a while to really learn. Thank you! The kitchen is very practical with plenty of room. I have learnt so much in terms of how to make, prepare, and cook so many healthy options. The theory of nutrition both good and bad... above all just being immersed in the passion Colette and Joe have for all of this ultra-nutrition was most inspiring and rewarding."

“ I enjoyed every aspect of this course from start to finish. Nutrition was an integral part of my learning when I studied Homeopathic medicine in the nineties. What I learnt at Truefood Academy both complemented and updated what I had previously learned. My favourite part of the course was, without a doubt, the practical aspect, I have always been passionate about food and love combining healthy, carefully sourced food with creativity, to produce delicious dishes. In the past I have done some cookery demonstrations and cooking for groups. Colette and Joe were both incredibly accommodating, patient, good humoured, knowledgeable, and adaptable. The food that we were fed was superb; everyone on the course enjoyed it. This course is made accessible for everyone, no matter how much or how little you know about nutrition, you will feel included and benefit. It also represents extremely good value for money. I do hope that we have some catch-up days”
