Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoyed the course and learned alot! The nutritional info was helpful and fits with the other information i have been learning. The definition of healthy....not just calories but the combination of micronutrients and balance for meals great advice. I wish there were some specific quantities for cooking but perhaps it will help me experiment a bit more. not a chef, not even a confident cook.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very helpful tips and tricks. This course provided several recipes and tricks that I now use on a weekly basis. I really enjoyed Chef Briwa's presentations. I do wish there had been about 4 more lessons to really round it out and provide some more variety. I was less interested in the Sonoma Smart Plate, but nutrition information is always helpful when trying to prepare a healthier menu.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good idea to combine Chef Bill with the noted author of the Sonoma Diet books. Between the two of them, they provided a good overview of the why and how of healthy food. My key takeaways from the course: encouragement to be creative In the kitchen, emphasized by their giving recipe ingredients but not amounts; the use of small amounts of high-flavor (and perhaps calorie-dense) foods such as cheeses to make a healthy dish more exciting and tasty. I got a better grasp of several cooking procedures along the way, and lots of good ideas for what to keep in the pantry and how to work healthy foods into a busy schedule. And it was fun to watch, beginning to end. Highly recommended, and I will probably buy more of the Culinary Institute courses in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Informative and engaging The nutritional and cooking information in the course are really useful and practical. I learned a lot of helpful tips on cooking techniques and meal prep ideas. Some of the reviews seemed to indicate that a lot of the content was common sense but I didn't feel that way. I cook most of my meals but have never taken an actual cooking course, and thought the content was great. Even the information that I imagine to be 'common' was really good to have confirmed by experts instead of just wondering if there was much of a difference between the type of oat or grain that you eat. The tips on seasoning food to maximize flavor while keeping fat or sugar levels in reason were very interesting. Also, I appreciate the cooking ideas and techniques on cooking a lot (and skillfully) with grains and veggies and going into detail on how to do this easily and minimize cook/prep time. Being able to incorporate these foods into a meal in place of the easy go-to processed carbs and processed meats to build a much more nutritional dense plate is very inspiring!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great course I got all cooking courses. One of them is this one. I learned a lot and like cooking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best for Newbies This course was informative and interesting, but it would be best for someone who knew little or nothing about nutrition. The back and forth between the nutritionist and the chef was interesting, and we picked up several cooking tips (like, who knew lemon was so powerful!) and some of the recipes are on our list to try after the course.

Connie Guttersen

At the CIA, I've had the amazing opportunity to work with some of the most talented chefs in the world like Chef Bill Briwa and as a result, my own nutrition philosophy has changed for the better. I hope yours will too. Rather than looking at food and eating as a diet, I like to think of it more as a lifestyle, where meals are a celebration and I can encourage my own family to indulge in healthy and delicious foods. Words like healthy, indulgence and celebration typically don't together, but good food that is prepared well is actually a treat to the palate.
