In need of a speedy vegan meal? Then look no further and join our online cooking class to learn how deliciously easy and versatile farinata pancakes are. Inspired by a traditional Italian recipe, these chickpea pancakes can be topped or filled however you like.


What to expect

When you need some quick cooking inspiration, our Online masterclasses are the perfect place to start. Join us through Zoom from wherever you are in the world and cook along with our chefs as they teach you a new skill or recipe, all within the comfort of your own kitchen. Using your own ingredients and equipment means you’ll be confident that you can recreate all the dishes whenever you like.

You’ll join our chef teachers virtually at the Academy, where they’ll guide you through the recipes and techniques step-by-step, watching you on screen and advising you throughout the class.

We’ll email you all the details in advance so you can shop and prepare in plenty of time, then in the class you can just concentrate on cooking along with the chef and your fellow classmates – and eating your fantastic food as well!

In this class, you’ll be whisking up the chickpea batter and perfecting frying the pancakes on your own hob. To go alongside, we’ve got a great recipe for cashew cream to share with you and a hearty caponata-style topping, but you can mix it up in the future with your own favourite fillings.
