The Practical Kitchen provides nutrition services to both individuals and businesses.  For individuals, we offer a customised nutritional advice service, menu planning,  and workshops.  For businesses we offer nutritional analysis of menus and recipes.  We are also available to provide presentations for different groups in the community, based on the interests and needs of their particular audience.

Having teaching as well as dietetic qualifications, we are also equipped to offer specialised nutrition and cooking classes, demonstrations, workshops, and clubs to schools, and school aged children (particularly high school).  These services all combine a science based approach to nutrition and cooking, reinforcing key concepts in science curriculums.

All advice and information is evidenced based, and delivered through a mindful eating perspective.  The Practical Kitchen not believe in heavily restrictive diets or demonising food.  We do believe in tailoring diets to suit the needs and preferences of the individual.

Based near Bakewell, in the Peak District, we are perfectly positioned to  meet the needs of individuals, communities and businesses located in the Peak District, as well as being able to work with interested parties in the nearby cities and regions.
