Culinary Medical Classes

Coming Soon…

Culinary medicine is a new evidence-based field in medicine that blends the art of food and cooking with the science of medicine.¹ Its purpose is to help people with unique dietary needs make good personal medical decisions about accessing and eating high-quality meals that help prevent and treat disease and restore well-being¹.

Classes are based on unique dietary needs (ie., Diabetes, Celiacs, Cardiovascular Disease), are taught from the food-first perspective, and include information based on diet, lifestyle, and nutrition and how they relate to disease or check Portland.

“The Certified Culinary Medicine Specialist (CCMS) incorporates healthy eating into patients’ diets through the comprehensive knowledge of nutrition and the culinary techniques to prepare food that is consistent with real-world budgets, time constraints, and nutritional ideals.”²
