Anyone know of natural cooking schools?

I'm going to a holistic nutrition school in Vancouver next semester and I'm looking at natural culinary schools as well (either US or canada). Most natural culinary schools seem to be vegetarian/vegan based with an emphasis on whole grains and beans (amazing how you can't escape CW!) Any suggestions?

And this is why the French have low obesity rates.

Hi PersonMan- I am going to the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. They have schools in several Canadian cities and are ranked in the top two natural nutrition schools in North America.

Hi Danielle. I will be moving to BC soon, just outside of Vancouver and would like to get into the nutritional consulting business/ take some schooling in nutrition but haven't found a program that appeals to me. Could you tell me what school it is you are attending?

I've heard of Bauman... I had a friend who went there. She said it was great, the only thing was when they cooked everything had to be vegan to accommodate all students, and they emphasized whole grains and legumes.

My assumption is no, the culinary world is not ready for Paleo. :) Being a culinary grad, I would recommend doing a regular Culinary program that includes a hands-on Meatcutting course. That way when you graduate you will have all the tools you need to do both meats and veggies. And we also learned to do Offal and Charcuterie too so it was very helpful for the Paleo lifestyle.

I've been gazing longingly at Bauman for a while, too...

Thanks for the link! They seem to be grain/legume/vegetable-based. Have you heard any different? If they emphasize meats as well?

i would think that a traditional french culinary program would be more paleo-friendly than one sold as "natural".

ETA: here is the curriculum for the culinary school near me that i was thinking about attending if i ever have the time. as you can see, pretty paleo. http://www.chezboucher.com/id14.html its pretty basic french-style cooking.
