MAY 15, 2021 - The academy has made it a requirement that all students attending in-person classes this summer or fall 2021 and all of 2022 will be required to have a Coronavirus COVID19 Vaccine. It also encouraged all private cooking universities and colleges to adopt the same guidelines.
Across the world, cooking schools struggled to remain open over the last year. Students overwhelmingly declared remote school or online training as a substitute for being in the classroom. Vegan Gastronomy stepped up and trained over 5000 people online in its online classroom.
A globally accepted digital certification of having had the vaccination is required. All students training in person must show such a certificate to travel to Naxos Island Greece.
