Culinary Genomics uniquely unites the fields of genomic science and nutritional biochemistry with the culinary arts. Our Culinary Genomics Certification Program opens the door for nutrition and health experts to step into this cutting-edge arena and allows nutrition and health experts to apply the very basics of nutrigenomic science and culinary translation in clinical practice and public health education. Prior knowledge of nutrigenomics and genomic test information are not required for this program.
The Genomic Kitchen's Culinary Genomics Certificate Program combines the fundamentals of nutrigenomics and culinary genomics presented in our Genomic Kitchen Pro course with four additional advanced meal planning and culinary application modules that offer deeper insights and advanced applications of culinary genomics for clinical practice or public health education.

Amanda Archibald, RD: Nutritional Biochemistry, Food Science, Culinary Genomics, Nutrition Education and Culinary Translation
Amanda Archibald is a nationally-recognized nutrition expert (RD) who has been involved in lecturing, teaching and thought innovation for individuals, health professionals, chefs, foodservice operations and corporations since 2003. In 2015 Amanda unveiled the concept of Culinary Genomics in Johannesburg, South Africa (Translational Nutrigenomics Conference) and at The Institute for Functional Medicine International Conference in Austin, Texas. Her "cutting-edge" work uniting science and medicine with the kitchen opened up a new frontier for food, placing genes and the kitchen at the epicenter of healing. In short, a new food and health conversation was ignited.
The concept of culinary genomics shared in this course is currently being piloted on menu at a 5 hospital system in California, with the goal of reshaping food and health knowledge for clinical staff, employees and importantly, patients.
Amanda has taught in more than 100 U.S. locations, Canada, Europe, and South Africa. She is a frequent presenter at health, medical and food-focused conferences. Recent presentations and invites include The Integrative Health Symposium, NYC, The International Neurogastronomy Symposium, KY, Supplyside West, NV and the Bioceuticals Clinical Symposium, Sydney Australia (2019). Amanda is involved in a number of courses for nutrition and health professionals, where she teaches how to combine genomic information with food and the culinary arts to treat complex health issues. She also works with individuals in private practice.
A native European, but naturalized American for more than 20 years, Amanda currently resides in Western Wisconsin next to the mighty Mississippi River.
Frequently Asked Questions
The Certificate in Culinary Genomics builds upon the Genomic Kitchen PRO course (required), through 5 additional modules. These advanced modules include case studies so that participants can see how we link the basic concepts of nutrigenomics to the kitchen (culinary genomics). The advanced modules include deeper insights into recipe selection, organization and meal planning using nutrigenomics principles. Advanced modules also include a deeper review of food and nutrition science that informs which ingredients to choose and how to prepare them for optimal food-gene interaction and nutrient utilization.
