The ONLINE Vegan Cheese & Tapas Workshop (6 weeks) is a journey through the world of making vegan cheeses, spreads, pâtés and dips that are analogues to versions of popular dishes found around the world. The workshop is offered over 6 weeks that provides ONLINE students the ability to create their own scheduled for the course to complete the required projects.
Special techniques learned 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.
Vegan Gastronomy Culinary Academy uses various specialty products during the course. These products are not required but enhance the vegan cheese making experience. We provide two options for you when purchasing specialty ingredients:
- Basic Vegan Cheese Ingredient Package (BUY ONLINE)
- Full Vegan Cheese Ingredient Package (BUY ONLINE)
How ONLINE Course Works?
You will be provided a course console using a GOOGLE Proprietary system that you use to navigate recipes and training videos conducted at our training centers around the world. There is not a video for every recipe but there are videos for key recipes. The videos are a combination of both LIVE (you can watch later) and Recorded (from previous courses) videos provided to you in a secure and proprietary Facebook Group with fellow online students from around the world. You will post pictures or videos of the dishes you have done and share with us likes and dislikes as well as questions on how to modify the recipe to meet your unique needs.
