What are the recipes?

We generally don't advertise what recipes we are teaching in order to prevent preconcieved ideas of particular recipes, regardless of your cooking skill you are guaranteed to learn something new in this online format!

If you are concerned about the recipes from a dietary requirement perspective, please email

What do I do if I have a food allergy or dietary requirement?

If you have a food allergy, you can omit any known allergy ingredients with your preferred ingredients. 

What if I don't like what is cooked?

The recipes taught throughout the course are designed to offer participants the chance to increase their cooking skills while learning key nutritional information. Each recipe has been specifically selected to introduce a new core skill each class. We also hope to teach all participants to cook with new ingredients and develop their palate. We encourage our participants to try everything once! 

Will Jamie be there or be teaching the class?

Unfortunately no, but we are thrilled to be able to continue his work, teach his recipes, hints, and shortcuts to cooking delicious and healthy meals from scratch. He has visited all our centres and has met our teams and all our Food Trainers are trained to deliver the program in the unique Jamie style.
