Food for Performance

A hands-on cooking event for recreational athletes who want to learn how to improve their health and performance through cooking.

Food for Performance aims to provide people with a place to come together and learn skills and recipes they can apply to their performance nutrition program.

Born from a passion for healthy cooking combined with a food-first approach to performance nutrition,  Food for Performance  brings a new concept to the world of cooking workshops. 

Using the purpose-built teaching kitchen facility at Liverpool’s John Moores University and under the guidance of a trained chef, we create fresh and tasty performance-boosting meals and snacks. 

As well as the ‘how’ we also teach the ‘why’ behind the ingredients, and also how to use the foods to improve your sporting performance.

Tickets include all ingredients, and equipment, just turn up! You will also be given recipe cards of the meals you made to take away so you can recreate them at home and show off your new cooking skills! 

“I thought this was a great idea as I’m interested in nutrition for my cycling and not being the best cook this was ideal. I liked the fact that the recipes were printed out for us step by step so it would be easy to repeat the dishes and snacks at home. Great fun too, let me know when the next one is!” Andy Bennet – TLI cycling champion and cycling coach.

“The workshop was really well organised and it was great learning some new skills amongst some like minded people. I’d recommend a course to anyone looking to boost their cooking skills and further their sporting performance.”Liam Agnew, SENr registered Sport and Performance Nutritionist and Personal Trainer
