Let's cook: Vegan

No meat, no eggs, no dairy…? No problem. Our half-day vegan cooking class shows just how delicious and easy plant-based eating can be. Whether you’re dabbling in flexitarianism or already a seasoned vegan, we think you’ll love learning some new seasonal dishes that put plants first.


What to expect

With our Let’s cook… classes you’ll learn how to adapt your everyday baking to suit your lifestyle, whether that’s for a dietary need, to focus on healthy eating or to simply expand your knowledge and understanding of different foods and cooking methods. 

In this class, our aim is to get you as excited as we are about flavour combinations and cooking techniques that use fruits, veg, nuts, pulses, herbs and spices in new ways. Whether that’s adding zingy Asian flavours to humble veg or creating boozy, luxurious desserts, these are dishes everyone will want to make again at home.
