Plant Based Vegan Training is a certificate course focused on improving people's skills on using non-animal plant based products to make mainstream vegan dishes that taste amazing, and to develop dishes that meet health and food allergy objectives, as well as understanding how respecting religious or belief dietary requirements can be a pathway to larger acceptance of plant based vegan cuisine.

Free From That's  Vegan cooking schools 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, aroma and appearance.

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 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.

    Vegan Cuisine Level 1

    Posted by Kate Sabatine (San Francisco) on 27th Jun 2017

    I came into this class with an open mind looking to expand my knowledge in vegan cuisine. Before this class, I was especially hoping to learn new skills to apply to my work place at a vegan restaurant. Given my two goals, I can say that this class exceeded my expectations and I learned so much from the instructors and my peers. The diverse classroom (students from all over the world) is such a rare opportunity to be a part of. I think that one of the biggest take-aways from this experience was the connections I developed here. The instructors are eager to help you connect with people in the industry globally, which is incredible! Each day covered a new topic which kept things interesting and exciting. We did a myriad of different challenges that were aimed at helping us understand and apply the material we learned. I really appreciated the hands-on learning style, that catered to people of all culinary or non-culinary backgrounds. I recommend to anyone with the privilege of affording this experience!

    Vegan Level 1

    Posted by KIm Fung Nam (Hong Kong) on 21st Jun 2017

    - Exposure to over 100 recipes- with ingredients and techniques used
    - Culinary instructors have a lot of knowledge on technique and flavours
    - A lot is packed in to this course so the onus is on you to keep up and be proactive in getting what you want out of the course.
    - the academy has developed its own line of products that are great. They will elevate your vegan cooking to another level. .

    - Not always enough time to ask questions in class, but students do have access to ask questions over email
    - Delivery of the sessions can be improved by having just 1 instructor deliver the materials (my personal preference).. Having interjections here and there by multiple instructors breaks up the flow.
    - Details of how to run a vegan business were interjected here and there. Would have been better to have a session soley for this topic.

    Overall, I would recommend this course, but be ready to be hard working, professional and focused.

    I learned very much!

    Posted by Malene (Denmark) on 18th Jun 2017

    The course was very intense, we made a lot of fantastic food and got a lot of information. I have learned so much.

    We were people from all over the world (China, Peru, USA, Mozambique, India Australia, UK, Turkey, Belgium and more) participating the course. It was a great experience to meet all these different people and cultures.

    The teachers were very professional and had much knowledge of nutrition, food, health, environment and science; it was very exciting.

    I´ll give my biggest recommendations to Vegan Gastronomy Culinary Academy.
    Level 1 course was my fourth course and definitely not my last.

    Thank you Jessica, Stephanie and Manuel.

    Intensive vegan course

    Posted by Francesca - Savouring Seasons (Belgium) on 18th Jun 2017

    The classes pack a lot of interesting information about the world of plant-based cuisine (its environmental and nutritional impact) in between sessions of preparing lots of different dishes. The tempo of the classes simulates a real world kitchen environment. The last week focuses mostly on developing your own recipes with a partner which is really challenging if you're not that experienced in the kitchen. This is a course for people who want to work in the kitchen / come up with their own recipes to get inspired and challenged to take their cooking skills to the next level.

    Not for the faint of heart

    Posted by Maddie Campbell on 16th Jun 2017

    Really exciting class that offered a lot of information. Not for anyone who is looking to slack off as the course is quite rigorous especially during the first week. Overall a wonderful experience. The class was fun and motivated me to do my best. Thank you for the time in Palma!
