The program overs all aspects of vegan cuisine and provides an in depth training experience. Courses cover converting or veganizing traditional cuisine on savory dishes, sweet fine pastry dishes, making international vegan dishes, creating artisanal vegan cheeses from around the world, and learning vegan baking techniques. The importance of taste, texture, cost, and health aspects of cuisine are taught through innovative techniques. The program helps students develop skills to pursue a life or career as a skilled and certified Vegan chef. 

  • WEEK 1 - VEGAN BAKING & CHEESE - In the first week students learn to make vegan versions of some of the most popular breads and cheeses in the world. A portion of training is focused on gluten free versions.  Using both ancient techniques and modernist approaches students learn to make both baked goods and cheeses in various different ways with various different types of ingredients.
  • WEEK 2 - VEGANIZING TRADITIONAL CUISINE -  In the second week students learn the foundations of creating or veganizing popular dishes from around the world to create plant based and vegan versions. Techniques enable students to learn to create any type of dish to emulate animal based dishes including cheese, meat, eggs, and seafood.  Dishes from around the world are taught, highlighting techniques that can be used to veganize any dish. Training also includes learning advanced approaches to Ice Cream and Pizza.
  • WEEK 3 - VEGAN PASTRY - In the third week students learn advanced techniques in modernizing the world's most complicated and well known pastries into amazing vegan versions using low cost and functional ingredients. Pastries include Macarons, Tiramisu, Eclairs, Baklava and many more.

The comprehensive hands on program is only taught at our private training center on the island of Mallorca Spain in the city of Palma. Palma Mallorca (Airport Code: PMI).

We do teach Gluten Free recipes but it must be known that there is no way for us to guarantee any cross-contamination. While we can make suggestions on alternative ingredients and we do make several gluten free recipes, due to the presence of Gluten at our academy we cannot accept Coeliac students without a written doctors note

We do at times also teach you to make selective products where it can improve flavor, reduce cost, or improve texture and taste. We attempt where possible to use organic produce (based on availability)

    Veganize my life

    Posted by Tracy (Saudi Arabia) on 5th Aug 2019

    What a great experience! I am a novice in the kitchen and Chefs Jessica McKenzie and Stephanie Prather made me feel so supported throughout my large learning curve. The Chefs are highly experienced, patient, and kind to someone like me who is not already an experienced chef. I learned some many skills that I can now take forward in my journey to veganize my life. I am excited, motivated, and an enthusiastic about sharing my newfound knowledge with family and friends of delicious ways to make traditional items. Thank you!!

    Will recommend school to everyone I meet

    Posted by Seth le Chef (New Orleans, USA) on 14th Mar 2019

    This was hands down the best culinary experience I've ever had. I took the full 4 week course (Intro to Vegan, Baking and Pastry, International, and Pizza and Ice-cream) plus an extra course for Cheeses and Tapas. In the time that I attended the VGCA I learned at-least like 300 recipes. Manuel, Jess, and Steph all did a marvelous job of teaching the class not only the crucial details to make sure your recipe turns out perfectly but also some history and fun facts about all of the products we used. I will be recommending the VGCA to every vegan I meet.
