ONLINE COURSE OVERVIEW
Free From That #VeganCookingSchool is a niche/specialty school in the art of elaborating vegan dishes. The training program is for using your existing skills in a restaurant, hotel, catering or kitchen environment and taking them to the next level. The series is offered in sixteen (16) four (3) hour sessions over two week period that provides the building blocks of Plant Based Vegan Cuisine to replace conventional dishes that use animal based products.
The foundation of the training is focused on understanding how to create desired flavors using all parts of the plant kingdom. The training evolves to help you understand preparation techniques to reach desired textures and appearance.
Areas covered (changes seasonally) may include how to use spices, nuts, legumes/beans, sea plants, mushrooms and fungi, grains, roots and tubers, cactus, and coconuts. Lessons also include various topics including making fast food, elaborating whole food dishes, creating raw food dishes, designing fancy finger food or tapas, and developing international street food dishes.
Our ONLINE classroom/teaching style is master class demonstration by instructor followed by each student individually making and recreating the same dishes. A small portion of training encourages and demonstrates to students how to elaborate their own dishes based on skills learned during their training.
