Great context and very well designed. It is a very intense curriculum but Francesca is hands on throughout the live sessions, ready to explain and clarify all your questions. I have a small eating design project in mind and can hardly wait to give this method a try! Thank you Francesca for setting up this online school! :)

The FDT methodology course is perfect for people starting their adventure with Food Design and those who may think that the topic has already been cracked. The FDT methodology is the tool you need and which you can use over and over in any food project.
The first week of exploring this method on the one hand was a big challenge (a lot of exercises, you have an opportunity to get to know you and what inspires you and also getting used to food-around ideas that seem seemingly crazy at the moment). On the other hand, all this time you had everything you needed to do it the best - video lessons, materials describing the steps and methods and the awareness that at any time, you can turn to Francesca if you meet a problem or have any questions. I'm looking forward to the next course week (thinking that it's super awesome)!
