Andy Kappes FOOD COACH

Andy is a qualified and experienced educator in the food and nutrition field. Andy has always had a passion for real and delicious food - especially sharing meals and good times!

Andy's background is in food studies, nutrition and health education in secondary, tertiary and community settings. From an early age Andy has been passionate about food – planning, creating it, eating and more than anything, sharing meals and good times around a table!

It all started by completing a degree in home economics teaching and moving into the teaching world.  Since then Andy has spent 18 years educating young people about food and nutrition and instilling in them the joy of food and cooking.

Andy has also managed the kitchen of a boarding school, catering for large and diverse groups, meeting their many dietary requirements.  Over the years Andy has also held many successful adult cooking classes on international cuisines and other themes.

I am now putting together all these skills and many years of experience in both education and practical pursuits, to provide nutritional consultations, healthy meal plans, recipes, shopping lists and tips and much more.  Andy is passionate about maximising health and working with people to help bring this about.
