VEGAN CUISINE (L1) 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.
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.Areas covered (changes seasonally) may include how to use and create spices and mixes, nuts, legumes/beans, sea plants, mushrooms and fungi, grains, roots and shoots, and coconuts.

HOW OUR TEACHING WORKS
Vegan Gastronomy Culinary Academy's cooking school is a niche/specialty school in the art of elaborating vegan dishes. The training program is for using your existing skills as a skilled home cook, aspiring chef, restaurant or hotel cook or chef and taking it to the next level. The series is offered in ten (10) sessions spread over 5 days. The course provides the building blocks of plant based vegan cuisine to replace conventional dishes that use animal based products. Our classroom/teaching style is both masterclass demonstration by instructor followed by students making and recreating the same dishes and hands on training encouraging and demonstrating to students how to elaborate their own dishes based on skills learned during their training.
During your course you will be sampling and tasting dishes during each course you create. Students will be creating 6-8 recipes a day used in multiple dishes and will be given short breaks to taste and eat dishes. Any leftovers can be taken from the academy in supplied containers. We are a cooking academy and not a restaurant. While you make dishes and we have tastings, containers are provided for you to take food away to have during midday and after school breaks.
