The Institute of Technology Tallaght in Dublin is pleased to announce a new unique Masters Programme in Applied Culinary Nutrition for culinary professionals worldwide seeking to innovate food to meet the growing consumer need for health and wellness. It focuses on taking an applied approach to linking science and research with the kitchen, making it relevant to day to day food business operations and the creative and confident provision of healthful options on menus.

Changing how we eat is linked to changing how we cook and how we taste. A critical knowledge of the application of flavour science is key to bringing about such innovation for classically trained chefs. Innovating for health and wellness can only be done successfully with the application of nutrition principles and practices; this programme empowers the chef to develop a specialism in this area in a way that is practical and strategic for the food business. (While legislation is pending on the nutritional labelling of menus, the focus of this programme is to give a broader perspective, i.e. on creating healthful options).
