From misleading food labels and to an opaque supply chain, it's more clear than ever that the surest way to a wholesome diet is to cook your meals from scratch with healthy ingredients. Thanks to the Natural Gourmet Institute, which just relaunched its website with a fresh new look, casual cooks and professionals alike can get the skills and training they need cultivate a healthy, holistic approach to food.

Natural Gourmet Institute’s Chef’s Training Program is a comprehensive and professional program that trains students to meet the growing demand for culinary professionals who integrate health, flavor, and sustainability. Home cooks can attend NGI's variety of hands-on or demonstration classes; upcoming sessions include "Vegan Umami," "How to Season like a Chef," and the ever-useful knife skills. On Friday nights, the school is transformed into an intimate dining room and hosts its family-style Friday Night Dinner, prepared by Chef’s Training Program students and instructors. (NGI also recently hosted JBF's welcome reception for its fifth annual JBF Food Conference, themed "Health & Food: Is Better Food the Prescription for a Healthier America?")
