Our programs emphasize a holistic approach to lifestyle, health and nutrition and the use of whole, organic, unprocessed, local foods to achieve optimum health and happiness. The art of raw chef certification blends hand-on training and theoretical knowledge taught by Darko Juric and the art of raw team. Our curriculum covers a beginner to advanced techniques to create healthy, gourmet and flavor balanced recipes. Our students learn directly from our mentors and instructors in a professional and business operational kitchen where we encourage an action-oriented learning. As a graduate, you will learn how to prepare delicious vegan, gluten-free, plant-based gourmet dishes that are offered for restaurant customers. Our approach is unlike any others because the art of raw academy operates along-side it’s own restaurant. You will have a hands-on experience of making recipes for real guests in addition to learning and getting certified.
