Mama’s Koelkast Academy

Are you a mama with a passion for cooking?
In that case, we are looking for you!

Do you want to become a professional cooking mama?

You have ambition and drive, and you are incredibly good at cooking. But how will you turn these qualities into becoming an entrepreneur in the food sector? Mama’s Koelkast Academy has taught mothers for the past nine years, and in each training course, you will learn everything you need to know as a powerful woman to start your own business. We will help you combine your ambitions and skills in the kitchen. Doing this allows you to share your authentic dishes with paying customers and clients!

In the 3-months-long training course, we will work through all the things you need to become an entrepreneur in the food sector. Besides classroom lessons, you will also work in an online learning environment and have individual guidance from our team and our experienced cooking mamas. We conclude the course with a final exam to put all the experiences and knowledge into practice. Founder Aaliyah will share her ten years of entrepreneurship experience and tell you about the pitfalls, do’s and don’ts and how to combine this with being a mother and mindfulness.

We give a lesson every week, in the morning, during school time, and you can choose between Tuesdays and Thursdays. Of course, we’ll take the school holidays into account!
