At the Academy of Culinary Nutrition, we don’t hold back from prospective students. We lay out the full course curriculum, the types of assignments students complete, what our grads are doing in the field and how we structure our teaching – plus we throw open our doors for virtual sample classes and offer a detailed info session with our director and founder, Meghan Telpner.
