GOLD cooking workshops

NAQ Nutrition hosts cooking workshops as part of Brisbane City Council’s Growing Older and Living Dangerously program. Each hands on workshop is run by qualified Dietitians and Nutritionists. You will learn how to create delicious masterpieces and explore different themes. Reinvigorate your menu plan through using our dietitian approved recipes and skills you learn in the workshop.

We are thrilled to announce that we are back running face to face workshops! With strict COVID safety plans ensuring we adhere to social distancing rules, you will see some changes to the way our workshops are run, however this won’t take away from the fantastic experience of participating in our cooking workshops! Some of these include  reduced participant numbers, no sharing of ingredients or cooking equipment, participants preparing food for themselves only, and payment prior to the event only (no cash will be taken on the day).  Our number 1 priority is to ensure the safety of all participants.

Please note – Due to Queensland Government restrictions regarding gatherings, people who are not booked in will not be allowed into the venue. Please call or email us if you need someone to attend with you or require more assistance. Cash payments on the day will not be accepted, please pay online.

Important – if you are showing signs of cold or flu, have travelled in the last 14 days (domestically or internationally) or have been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, we are unable to let you attend the workshop. If you have booked into the course and reply yes to any of these,  please know in advance and we will refund or postpone your booking.

You can find more information about our COVID safe plans and policies on our website here

If you do not attend on the day without informing us, we may not be able to offer a refund or alternative booking date, however, this is up to the discretion of NAQ Nutrition.
