Bauman College offered everything I was looking for in a holistic nutrition program. The content was broad and in-depth. Instructors and staff were extremely knowledgeable and supportive. Although rigorous, the design of the program allowed for flexibility. Whether you are looking for a course to educate yourself or to eventually help others improve their nutrition, the Bauman College Nutrition Consultant program will change your life.
I completed the Holistic Chef program and it was the best decision I could have made for myself. Since graduating my husband and I bought a Bed and Breakfast where I am now running my own business and cooking for guests with a variety of dietary preferences at Loganberry Inn. It had always been a dream of mine to own a B & B and graduating from the holistic chef program gave me the confidence and skills to pursue that dream.
The program was a great introduction to so many techniques, specialty diets, world flavors and traditions, business, and getting real world experience through the externship has proven to be a valuable addition to the program. The instructors are incredibly knowledgeable and truly want every student to succeed. This isn't like trying to learn off of YouTube videos, this is real life experience and training. Attending the weekly classes and staying on pace with the lessons and cooking labs is intense but once you graduate you will be amazed at everything you learned and can do. You will be "thinking like a chef" and able to pursue your own dream!
Once I found Bauman College, it was like a dream come true, a school that offers a wonderful education about healthy cooking, nutrition and healthy lifestyle. Bauman College gave me the tools, knowledge and confidence to go out to the world and manifest my dreams.
Bauman College offered a more holistic approach to health than other dietetics programs, and I was able to work a full-time job, and have a baby while doing the program. Bauman College gave me information and tools about how diet, sleep and exercise affect us, and fueled my curiosity to learn more.
Bauman College gave me a foundation and understanding of how to cook for chronic health conditions using alternative ingredients, plant based, seasonal, organic whole foods. This foundation was very important for me not only personally but in my professional career. The skills I learned help me to become a better cook and recipe developer. Through my recipes, I’m able to provide solutions for people who needed to live without allergens that could potentially harm them.
The curriculum is rich with value and learning and the instructors truly care that you make the most of your training. I found myself in exactly the right place, facing in the right direction with my career path stretching out before me in beautiful, satisfying ways.
Bauman College gave me an in-depth knowledge of holistic nutrition and anatomy, coupled with an understanding of the challenges people experience and how we can use the food that we eat to encourage the highest quality life that we can. It has influenced the way that I see the world, how I think about the ingredients that I use in my recipes–from how I use my oil to the salt I select–and it allows me to be confident that I am considering my approach and application in a way that amplifies the positive qualities of the soups we make.
I’m blown away by how my education has up-leveled since graduating from Bauman College. My confidence with cooking has risen dramatically. The layout of the program, the deep-rooted education we’ve been taught has been much more than I ever could have dreamed of. We’ve gotten a MODERN CHEF’s dream education to be honest. Bauman has taught me how to source properly, how to cook using ingredients that are better for the body & support healing all while making food taste SO DANG GOOD!!!
I appreciated that the curriculum at Bauman wasn’t based on the Standard American Diet, but wasn’t overly dogmatic about one way of eating, either. It all felt very balanced. When I started the program there, I saw myself assisting people to eat healthier, and Bauman College was the perfect fit.
One of the best decisions I made was to enroll in the Culinary Arts program. I graduated with all the skills necessary to be successful as a Personal Chef, Cooking Instructor, and Caterer. Bauman's cooking instructors and staff are professional and supportive. The curriculum is comprehensive, unique, and practical. I immediately found employment as a personal chef to pro athletes as well as clients with health challenges. The knowledge and experience that I walked away with opened many doors which allowed me to explore different aspects of cooking including writing, recipe development, and meal plans. The opportunities are endless and the satisfaction of supporting others on their health journeys through food is magical. I really appreciate all the health benefits that my family and I have enjoyed from everything I learned at Bauman College.
I graduated from the Natural Chef program a couple of years ago and it was a great experience for me. It was an intense and very complete program where we learned how to work around a commercial kitchen, safety, making healthy and nutritious food, new ingredients and tips from our instructors and International Cuisine. I would probably just liked to have known more about the work load before enrolling so I could have organized my time in a different way but it was worth the work.
Everything I learned in the program has helped me at two jobs already.
I am a recent graduate Class of November 2021 Holistic Chef. It was very challenging initially, but at the end of my journey, I'm very thankful to tough it out. I had a great mentor/instructor Chef Porsche, who is very supportive and won't let you give up on yourself. If you have a love for cooking and enjoy cooking for people, Bauman is a great place to develop your culinary skills. Thank you again, Chef Porsche and the very supportive administration staff at Bauman College.
