Meet your Trainer

The training will be provided by raw food chef, Deborah Durrant. Deborah trained at the Matthew Kenney Culinary Academy in California and is a Qualified Chef in Advanced Raw and Living Cuisine. Deborah’s courses were shortlisted for the Looking to Cook Best Short Cookery Course in the UK and Ireland 2012 (she missed out to Jamie Oliver who pipped her to the post in her category but she doesn’t mind too much about losing to him). Deborah has always been a real foodie so in 2005, when she wanted to eat a healthy diet, she set about learning how to make raw foods that taste every bit as indulgent, delicious and comforting as any cooked food. Now she knows how to make raw food that tastes so good that you really won’t know that it’s raw.

Deborah is passionate about supporting people who want to change their way of eating to suit them and their lifestyle through training, one-to-one coaching and recipe books. She also offers VIP days for people who would like a completely indulgent foodie experience and would like to learn how to make delicious, decadent and inspirational raw foods. She believes that this is the key to helping people make the switch to healthier choices by finding substitutions which really suit their bodies and their palates too.

She is a member of the International Association of Raw Food Coaches and Teachers, holds a Masters Degree with Merit in Change Skills from the University of Surrey and is a qualified coach. She is also a graduate of Tony Robbins Life Mastery University which included a juice feast and Health Mastery programme.

Evelyn-CribbinAs a complete novice to raw food I took two of Debs wonderful food courses within one month! I was amazed at all the wonderful and delicious things we made raw. I decided to take Taste as being a yoga instructor and nutritional health coach I wanted to add raw chef to this mix to eventually host my own events and retreats. Deb was very generous with her time and knowledge throughout the course and continues to still be! We were encouraged to be creative and come up with our own menus which seemed an impossible task at first, but I loved it!

Deb also shared her amazing plating skills which really is very important as people eat with their eyes. I have tried out lots of her recipes on friends and family who have all loved them. I now feel confident creating my own recipes and hosting a raw pop up dinner, I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to take the raw food skills to a new level or have a week of fun in the kitchen with like-minded people. Thank you Deborah!

PatrickI discovered Deborah Durrant at her Raw Food demo while attending the 2013 London Vegfest. Her creations were truly inspiring. I signed up for her FEAST course, and after that simply had to do the TASTE course as well. Both are 5 days of truly hands on raw food preparation, and great fun. The participant numbers are limited and you get loads of personal attention and advice from Deb. She helped me immensely with my particularly weak area which was presentation and plating.

My raw food ability and confidence has improved by leaps and bounds.

FEAST and TASTE are both excellent and enjoyable courses. Thanks Deb.
