Course description

Learn to cook vegan meringues, vegan mousse and vegan mayonnaise using aquafaba at this workshop in Sydney.

You’ve got to see it to believe it, but yes, the liquid from a can of chickpeas – also known as aquafaba – is amazing! You can whip it to “stiff-peaks” to make a miraculous egg-free meringue, use it in light and fluffy cakes and create creamy vegan mayo! The chickpea itself need not go to waste! Chickpea flour goes into deliciously versatile vegan quiches and faux tuna salad!

Join us for a 3-hour journey as Kate Jones (Sydney Vegan Market mover & shaker) takes you through the amazing things you can cook with the humble chickpea.

This class is perfect for beginners and home cooks who want to learn some vegan cooking basics.
