We know some find it a struggle creating a variety of tasty vegan dishes and using worthy alternatives, so we’re here to give you a helping hand. On this 5-day intensive Vegan Cooking Course we will give you confidence and teach you the fundamentals of vegan cooking, as well as a variety of useful tips and tricks in order for you to become the perfect vegan cook.
Perhaps you are you looking to shift to a plant-based lifestyle and don’t have the knowledge or confidence to do so, well this course is the perfect way to make the transition! Or perhaps you are already eating a vegan diet but are keen to broaden your skills and recipe repertoire, well this course will help all those who are interested in vegan food to understand the food you’re cooking and increase your expertise without the need for a cookbook. Not only will we teach you a vast range of vegan dishes and delicious alternatives, but you will also learn invaluable cookery skills that will give you the confidence in making your time in the kitchen that much quicker, more organised and as a result, more fun! It really doesn’t have to all be so daunting…
Each day is hands- on and will begin with a demonstration providing you with the knowledge of what you will be cooking for your 2 course lunch and more. After your lunch you will have another demonstration getting you ready for your afternoon cook where you will be making more delicious vegan dishes.
On the Thursday evening* you will all get the chance to invite a couple of friends or family along and throw a delicious and fun dinner party with your fellow participants. This will give you a great chance to put your newly acquired skills to the test and show them off amongst great company, while having a party celebrating your efforts!
No previous cooking experience is required but if you have some basic cooking skills there is still lots to learn – we can assure you, you will be leaving The Avenue kitchen with something new under your belt, whether a new found passion for plant-based cooking or a whole heap of new transferable culinary skills to continue your vegan cooking journey!
We at The Avenue are making a stand and changing tainted opinions of vegan cooking and introducing you all to a wonderful world of colour, flavour and experience! What’s stopping you?!
