The Vegan Cheeses and Tapas Workshop (1 week) is an in person training journey through the world of making vegan cheeses and Tapas including spreads, pâtés and dips that are analogues to versions of popular dishes found around the world. The workshop is offered over 5 days, 3 hours a day, that provides intensive focus on the processes of making plant based non-dairy cheese. Special techniques include: quick setting, rapid fermenting, making meltable cheeses, aging and rind finishing techniques, aromatic and flavoring layering and creating a variety of cheese textures. Course includes not only making popular cheeses but also how to elaborate popular spreads, patés, and dips to be made into dishes. Cheeses will be paired with spices from around the world as well as mixtures of common household spices that will help you create dishes that have the flavor, texture, and sometimes smells that replace cheese, pâté, and dips. You will also be elaborating artisanal dishes that you will take away with you to share with family, friends or clients. Course includes many tastings.

    Beyond my Expectations

    Posted by Rebecca (Colorado USA) on 14th Mar 2019

    I was amazed by the Vegan Gastronomy Cheese & Appetizer class I attended in Palma, Spain! The class was well organized and managed! I also found the instructors to be informative, easy to work with and always willing to explain and or clarify information. The week was beyond my expectations!! As a Plant Based Certified Chef, I recommend the academy for anyone who is working as a chef or anyone that is curious about plant-based food preparation, the course is designed to accommodate any level. Well done!!! I plan on returning later this year for additional training!

    So much in 5 days

    Posted by Payton on 15th Aug 2018

    This course is a whirlwind of information and is very hands on. You learn how to make a vegan cheese no matter where you come from in around the world. Learning about different country cheeses was fun. Only thing I would like to see is to make less cheeses and spend more time on plating them.

    This workshop was really fun. Best part was at the end inviting people from my yacht to come have some wine and try my creations.
