When Lidl Food Academy opened its doors for the very first time, it promised the wider public that it would pursue an endless taste journey. Since 2015, a number of cooking classes, seminars on nutrition, food and wine tasting, as well as seminars on specialised food categories have been materialised. At Lidl Food Academy, we support the value of healthy, homemade food, made with fresh ingredients from our land and we cook with these, thus contributing to a balanced diet and improving the quality of life of all of us. Food is a means of expression, socialisation, love. Food affects our health, mood, but also our appearance. Food is not only a key factor for survival; it is also a real pleasure for both ourselves and those we love.
Up until 2020, we have counted more than 200 free cooking classes for our customers and 600 original recipes created by our experienced chefs, but also hundreds of children who, as from 2018, have visited the Academy under the programme "Food Academy for children" which was organised under the auspices of the Ministry of Education, as well as the new Little chefs programme which was launched in 2022.
