Associate Chef and Instructor Graduates
At Living Light Culinary, we inspire our students to unleash their creativity. Whether you come to our school to improve your health, create healthy eating habits for yourself or your family by adding raw vegan dishes to your repertoire or explore a new path in life, Living Light Culinary Institute can provide you with an exceptional gourmet raw plant-based education. We have been educating people from all walks of life since 1998.
And in the next year, we are bringing a new focus to the plant-based culinary world - raw and cooked vegan fusion. Building on our time-tested raw food curriculum, this hands-on, five-day seasonal course offers a unique opportunity to explore various raw preparations and cooked techniques with whole foods. These techniques will inspire you to create plant-based food with high integrity, showcasing exquisite flavors while optimizing nutritional value. Students will learn how to prepare foods that are vibrant and vital with the local bounty here on the beautiful Mendocino Coast. We will focus on what each season has to offer and let the garden guide our creativity.
We believe that all of our graduates need a foundation not only in gourmet raw vegan cuisine but the knowledge and skills to share raw foods culinary dishes, nutrition and the benefits of this lifestyle to others. No matter what your goal, we are confident that after you complete our training, you'll feel motivated to share your talents and newly learned skills with your community.
