Andrea Docherty Nutrition and Pursuit Massage Therapy & Recovery Centre are teaming up to bring you 3 hands on cooking classes! These cooking classes are unique because you’ll be preparing the food too!

In these interactive workshops you will get the latest evidence-based nutrition advice, culinary tips & tricks and a fun night out!

We learn by doing – and studies show food tastes better when we make it ourselves!

Each class will have a different theme and you will get a booklet to take home containing recipes from the class and more!

Don’t forget to bring your appetite and reusable containers – there will be lots to sample and bring home as leftovers!
