Welcome to Sano School of Culinary Medicine - where a passion for food and health meets nutritional science.

If you’re passionate about nutrition, food and wellbeing and want to learn how to use food to benefit your health then you’ve come to the right place.

The interest in education around nutrition and demand for healthier food is bigger now than at any other point in history. According to the Nielsen Global Health and Ingredient-Sentiment Survey from August 2016, ‘70% of people now actively make dietary choices to help prevent health conditions'. Consumers are also looking for proper guidance on what and how much to eat in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Developed by Dale Pinnock, ‘The Medicinal Chef’, award-winning author and one of the UK’s leading nutritionists, our online Diploma in Applied Nutrition empowers you to make good food choices and develop nutritious recipes to support health. Use this knowledge for your own health or in your business. The choice is yours.

“As someone who works full time and hasn't studied in over 13 years, I've just completed the 'Food and Mood' module and loved it. This course is flexible, informative and I have really enjoyed it! Can't believe it's almost over but look forward to the possibility of additional modules.”
