Say goodbye to boring lunch boxes
Is it really possible to eat raw and living food (even in the colder months) and feel like you are not missing out?
Yes it is. You will be amazed at what you can make with little more than a blender, juicer, a food processor and a kilner jar. Nourish Online has lots of tips, techniques, recipes and guidance to show you how. There is also guidance on how you can vary some of the recipes to suit your own palate, which ingredients you can use to add sweetness and how you can put together your own raw menus from what you learn on the programme.
However for most people, moving to a cleaner way of eating requires support. See here for some FAQ
Meet Your Trainer
The training will be led by Deborah Durrant, a qualified chef in advanced raw and living cuisine. Deborah combined her interests as a lifelong passionate foodie with a keen interest in a raw plant-based diet to found the Deliciously Raw Culinary School. After working in the creative sector for 25 years she followed her dream to train as a chef at the Matthew Kenney Culinary School and wants to break the myth that raw food is about eating boring salad and show you can enjoy fabulously indulgent food with many nutritional benefits.
Deborah holds a Masters degree in Change Skills from the University of Surrey. This may seem surprising but this is at the heart of Deborah’s practice as a chef and trainer – supporting clients through change at a personal and organisational level.
With every healthy plant-based bite that we eat, we are committing to making a change to our health and wellbeing. All modesty aside, if you’ve tried any of my recipes already you’ll know that everything I make is delicious first and raw second. If you haven’t tried any of my recipes, you can try any of the free recipes on my website to get a flavour (sorry, no pun intended) of the kind of food I make. Since 2005, I tried to eat a high raw diet, but I kept returning to my most favourite cooked foods. What changed things for me was learning how to make the most amazing and delicious raw foods that taste so good that people don’t even think about the fact that they are raw. I pride myself on making raw twists on cooked classics, and my family and friends prefer the raw foods I make, finding them much more satisfying and full of flavour. I have also developed 8 course raw tasting menus for pop ups and other events and had the pleasure of being a personal chef for private fine dining clients.
I trained as a Chef with Matthew Kenney Culinary in the US (previously named 105 degrees), and I am a Qualified Chef in Advanced Raw and Living Cuisine. I am one of very few people in the world to have completed Matthew’s Professional Applications programme. What that means for you is that I can teach you some pretty cool techniques. If you don’t know Matthew, he founded Pure Food and Wine in New York and MAKE in Santa Monica, and currently has Plant Food and Wine in Venice, CA, White Lotus Miami and a number of other restaurants including Arata (previously The Gothic) in Belfast Maine. I worked at the Gothic in Maine after my training and can also bring to our work the experience of a professional kitchen. Matthew also has a string of raw food books to his credit. I really am proud to say that I have trained with the best.
“Deborah Durrant’s patience and generosity of spirit shine through on all the courses she offers. She finds a way to share her immeasurable wealth of knowledge in a way that is easy to understand no matter what level you are at on your raw food journey – beginner or advanced. She thoroughly understands her subject and imparts it in a way that can be transferred and applied very practically in your own life. She doesn’t just teach ‘recipes’ she trains you to know what ingredients and components are needed to recreate your favourite cooked dishes – she instils you with the knowledge, knowhow and intelligence to go forth and start creating – rather than just copying. Her teaching style is light hearted and well thought out and she layers information to make sure it is easily retained. A true inspiration. I highly recommend her courses”

How do I know if NOURISH ONLINE is right for me?
Nourish Online is suitable for anyone who LOVES eating raw plant based food and wants INSPIRATION and NEW IDEAS for the summer of 2017 to help you stay on track.
If you are searching for absolutely winning healthy yet indulgent quick and easy raw recipes that you can make firm family favourites for lunch boxes and treats – including nut free and sugar free options, this is for you.
The chances are that you have already invested in your health to a significant degree, whether it’s time and energy in learning how to eat healthily, money in experimenting with different raw foods and recipes that may or may not have worked out, or paying for weight loss programs or treatments for health issues that you’d really rather do without.
We all start 2017 with good intentions, and by the third or fourth week our spirits, enthusiasm (and tastebuds) can be a bit bored and waning, so Nourish Online will help you learn some healthy alternatives for lunch boxes and treats with an online community who will be your cheer leaders and support network.
Experimentation can be costly in many ways, and the last thing you want is to spend hours making recipes that don’t taste good, or wasting a lot of money on ingredients that you just don’t use.
Without proper planning raw food can become a very expensive affair!
With Nourish Online, you can learn how to make delicious raw plant based food to give you the best summer of 2017 in the comfort of your own kitchen.
Whether you’re new to raw foods, experienced and stuck in a raw food rut, or whether you need some new delicious raw inspiration, Nourish Online will provide you with amazingly delicious recipes and useful technical know-how so you can introduce a whole new range of festive food to your life… that will give you a sense of eating something truly delicious – without the negative impact that cooked foods have on your body and with all of the nutritiousness and deliciousness left well-and-truly in!
“Sweet was the second online programme I have taken part in with Deborah Durrant and I wasn’t disappointed by the content. The course contained so many different techniques to make a huge host of delicious sweet things that rival their cooked counterparts.
Online support was always there, not only from Deborah herself but also from the other course participants. It was exciting to see photos of what the others were producing and wonderful to have such camaraderie within the group.
The main gain for me though was finding out that I really can make beautiful and delicious desserts and teatime treats – this course gave me the confidence that I had lacked previously.
If you’re looking for the ultimate pleasurable experience then look no further – this online programme is it. I can guarantee you will not find anything better and will learn so much. Deborah’s expertise and knowledge shines through and you will find that she really cares about making sure you achieve the best end result in your work. ”

How does the programme work?
Once the programme begins, every day for 10 days you will be given access to a new programme module. You can work through all the activities for each module and submit the assignments online. Once a module has become unlocked, you can move backwards and forwards to complete the tasks and recipes in the order you wish. If, for example, you don’t have time to complete an activity on day 3 you can go back to it and complete it later in the programme.
Once you are part of the programme, you can also join the private FB community and join with likeminded people who are on the same path.
How much time will the programme take?
I have estimated that the contact time with the food will be up around 15 hours. That doesn’t allow for fermenting, chilling or drying time which allows you to get on with other things whilst the processes are underway. It is so much easier than keeping an eye on the oven!
After all the modules are unlocked, you have an additional 30 days to complete the programme and work through any unfinished modules and gain your certificate of completion, approved by The Vegetarian Society.
Can I download the materials and keep them?
Yes the recipes and guides are fully downloadable and you can refer to them after the course has finished.
I don’t have a blender. Can I still take part in the programme?
The majority of the recipes require a food processor or blender. You will struggle without one. It’s how we achieve such creamy and delicious results. You can take part in the programme but you will be limited in what you make.
I don’t have a dehydrator. Can I still take part in the programme?
2 of the recipes require a dehydrator as optional or you could use an oven on a low setting.
What if I can’t get my hands on some ingredients?
Generally substitutions can be found. Just ask Deborah what you can use to substitute for any hard to find ingredients.
Do I have to take part in the programme discussions?
No, you can download the guidance and recipes and work through them at a pace to suit yourself. If you would like to gain your Certificate of Completion, you will be required to complete the assignments.
I have a specialist diet. Is the programme suitable for me?
The programme is suitable for those who follow a gluten free, dairy free and vegan diet. Nuts are used on the programme but 55 recipes are nut free. Also coconut is used. Also, many of the recipes are low in sugar or offer solutions for no sugar options (such as how to use stevia).
