Event Details

The Healing Cuisine’s Raw Chef Certification is an intensive 6 day course where you will learn to make delicious and creative meals sure to delight and satisfy with quality local organic whole food and superfood ingredients.


Over the course of six days you will learn a variety of living food techniques including sprouting, marinating, germinating/activating, fermenting, and dehydrating through hands on experience with Master raw food chef Joanne Gerrard Young.  She will teach you how to formulate balanced menus and meal plans to meet your palettes and your body’s needs and desires.


You will have the opportunity to learn the foundations of raw food from the Godfather of Raw Food himself, Viktoras Kulvinskas co-founder of the Hippocrates Health Institute or a lecture on Detoxification & Colon Irrigation with Terri Zacanti, CHT, co-founder of the Living Light Culinary Institute and Ayahuascera shaman.
