Nutrition kitchen

Students using lab with kitchen equipment

Small scale catering laboratory

The kitchen adheres to professional kitchen regulations and has the capacity to accommodate 16 people based at 8 work stations. There is a separate discussion area with linked IT facilities. For students, we use this to develop cooking skills and dietary modification so that they have the knowledge and credibility to advise clients. 

A number of external agencies make use of the facility, including Vitaflo, Nutricia, NHS partners, and Trusts working in the field of diabetes, learning disability and paediatrics. We also work with our sports colleagues across the university in work linked to Leeds Rhinos, Doncaster Belles and others.
