Menopause Cookery Class


In this one-day hand-on cookery class we will guide you through the impact of menopause and what your body needs to cope with it. We will show you which foods to embrace and how to add them to you diet as well as which foods to avoid.

SKU: N/A Categories: ,


If you’re struggling with symptoms such as hot flushes, mood swings, weight gain, and brain fog, taking control of your diet may help you to feel better.

As women age, our bodies produce much less estrogen and progesterone which can have a dramatic impact on how we feel, our mood and our behaviours. These chemical changes to our hormones can also lead to osteoporosis, obesity, higher cholesterol levels, and an increased risk of chronic diseases. However, you can combat these issues by following a diet enriched in plant estrogen, calcium, and other essential nutrients.

If you’re looking for a way to get through this transition period, we invite you to join our one-day, hands-on cookery class. In this class we will teach you all about the changes patterns of hormones, our gut microbiome and how we can improve both our gut health and the symptoms most commonly associated with Menopause.  Led by Kumud Gandhi, Food Scientist, Founder of The Cooking Academy, Author & broadcaster, this class will teach you which foods to avoid and which ones to embrace. We’ll guide you through the impact of menopause and what your body needs to cope with it.

During the class, you’ll learn to prepare a range of nutrient-dense dishes, acting like natural remedies, that incorporate proteins such as chicken, fish, and prawns, along with specific vegetables, herbs, and spices that positively impact your metabolism and serotonin levels to improve your body and hormone balance.  The content of thsi class will change how youlook at food forever!

I am allergic to certain foods/ I have a special dietary requirement. Will this cause a problem?

We try our best to accommodate for special dietary requirements. Please notify us of your dietary requirements within 24 hours of booking.

I am an experienced cook, are all the courses suitable for me?

All courses are suitable for all levels as the classes are based more specifically on the cuisine rather than skill. The Chef will ensure that you have the assistance required to enjoy the day and really develop your cooking skills. If you are an experienced cook, you may particularly enjoy our Advanced classes. Please contact us if you would like further guidance.

I can’t handle spicy food; will your classes be too hot for me?

In our cookery classes, you get to make your own food to suit your own palate, so although we provide guidelines, you can adapt each recipe to suit your taste, as spicy or as not spicy as you’d like.

I’m a complete beginner, what class should I do?

Our cookery classes are not based on skill as such; they are all hands on and taught by an expert chef who can lead you through the cooking processes so even a beginner should be fine on our classes. However, if you want to start at the very beginning, and develop an understanding of food hygiene, knife skills and safety in the kitchen, our beginner’s cookery class would be the one for you.

I’m gluten intolerant, what classes can I attend?

Our Indian, Thai, and Nutritional classes can be easily altered and tailored to suit a gluten free diet. Please just ensure you make us aware of this at the time of booking.

If I purchase this cookery class voucher can the recipient exchange it for another class of their preference?

Yes, vouchers can be exchange for other classes, if there is a short-fall in the value, they can pay the difference.

Alternatively, you can purchase an open voucher that can be redeemed against any class of the equivalent value.

Is lunch provided in this class?

Yes, lunch is provided (and cooked by you!). If you have any special dietary requirement please make those known to us at the time of your booking.

Is there parking available on site?
