Healthy Foodie Cooking Classes
Healthy fine dining may sound like an oxymoron, but that’s exactly what these events are all about. You will experience an evening of healthy dishes prepared by a local chef, and I will be there guiding you through the nutritional value of several ingredients with interesting stories, facts and cooking techniques about the foods you’re eating.
What you can expect from the experience:
On top of an evening of entertainment, fun, delicious food and good conversation, you’ll learn:
- Specific cooking techniques that bring about flavor and nutrition
- Unique nutritional benefits of ingredients and what they can do for your health
- How to incorporate local, seasonal ingredients into your cooking, and info on why it’s so important to your health and the environment
Prices start from $100 per person and may vary based on location, number of people and menu. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to work out details and to book your healthy foodie cooking class.
I’ve had so much fun putting these on, and so have my host and guests. Read the testimonials below to find out more.
Tamer’s Nutritionist & Chef Cooking Classes are a fun and fantastic way to spend an evening be it by yourself, with a friend or as a private event in your own home. Admittedly as a fellow foodie and holistic nutritionist, I am a bit of a food and nutrition nerd, but both my husband (who is not a foodie or nutrition nerd) and I had an equally great evening at Tamer’s event. His classes are a guaranteed evening of great tastes, entertainment and education, without even knowing you are being educated. Tamer seamlessly works with and around the chef to share snippets of nutritional, cultural and historical trivia about the ingredients and dishes being served, all the while interacting and connecting with his guests and stopping to answer any questions as they arise. Hands down one of the best and most informative, as well as fabulously delicious cooking demonstration classes I have ever attended. And I have attended a few!
Tamer and a talented Chef treated us to a great evening with fascinating insights into some classic dishes and the special qualities of the ingredients that go into them. They created a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere for learning new techniques and processes with plenty of laughs along the way. Tamer’s deep knowledge of food culture and nutritional facts impressed us all and greatly enhanced the enjoyment of the delicious food. Bring on the next event, we’ll be there!

Good information, good food and good company – doesn’t get much better than that.

We first met Tamer as a personal trainer, tennis and holistic nutrition coach. Over the years we have watched him make two substantial documentaries, create a network of loyal clients, host cooking events, give lectures to motivate people to eat more healthily and take an interest in locally produced food whilst learning more about their health inside and out. We have attended a number of these events and have enjoyed learning from him and the people he involves. He is an inspirational speaker and can take a room full of people and truly change their lives. He cares deeply about his topic and the people he works with and it is this combination of knowledge and care which makes him so good at what he does.

We went to a dinner at which Tamer and a chef prepared an amazing meal with instructions on how to cook each dish and Tamer taught us about their amazing health benefits. We learnt how to cook tasty hors d’oeuvre, starters and the main dishes which was followed by an incredible sit-down dinner. What a fun evening with friends, prepared in a friend’s kitchen. What a great evening! Best of all it was a healthy meal, prepared with fresh herbs and spices with medicinal properties.

A fabulous evening combining a great mix of friendship, humour and instruction on the preparation and nutritious values of a 4 course meal. Hosted by good friends providing welcoming cocktails and wine to sip while listening and wetting our appetites on tasty apps and watching the preparation of the next dishes. Very interesting learning about the medicinal properties of the various spices and herbs and smelling the distinct differences between the freshly ground spices. The main meal with local ingredients was outstanding and full of flavor was consumed around the dinning table. A wonderful chance for good conversation and meeting new friends. Highly recommend Tamer, whose easy manner and ability to keep everyone interested was also matched by his choice of knowledgeable chef.

We experienced one of the best cooking courses lead by a very informative chef and enthusiastic nutritionist, Tamer. The diversity of content, and thorougher expertise gave me such amazing guidelines into new ways of cooking, as well as knowing the nutritional benefits. It was such a unique experience getting to how things are prepared, trying ourselves, and also being involved in group discussions, which made it that more educational. An experience I will never forget
Tamer’s nutritionist services have been great for a number of client, employee and personal social events. He always brings energy and expertise, and creates a relaxed, fun experience. I thought that The Nutritionist and the Chef In-Home Cooking Classes were his best idea yet and I didn’t hesitate to arrange this as a surprise for my wife’s birthday and a group of friends at our home. Tamer introduced a team of two chefs who walked us through how they prepared every part of an awesome Mexican four-course meal. The menu was nutritionist-approved by Tamer and they all had endless interesting and entertaining stories about the ingredients, health benefits and cooking styles. A really special and unique evening that everyone was blown away by!

We have greatly enjoyed our classes with Tamer and have been inspired by his enthusiasm and approach to Holistic Nutrition. Tamer presented a cooking class in our home and organized a chef to prepare a meal for our guests using only locally sourced ingredients. It was a great success and our group enjoyed a fantastically delicious meal whilst learning to source fresh produce from Cayman farmers and fishermen. We have attended a couple of cooking classes at studio kitchens organized by Tamer and local chefs and it is has definitely inspired us towards a more healthy way of eating, using local produce as much as possible and doublechecking the ingredients list on supermarket products. Tamer’s knowledge, experience and passion is inspirational and we recommend him for a healthy lifestyle and holistic nutrition.
