Course description

Learn to cook Vegan in Sydney – plant-based vegan protein substitutes for meat and cheese.

A plant-based meal can still provide the full-tummy feeling, creamy textures and savoury umami flavours we usually associate with animal food products. So let’s put the veg to one side and look at some amazing ways to “beef up” your vegan meals.

It’s “tales of the schnitty” at this tasty workshop, as you learn how to make Seitan to prepare schnitzel. There’s also a hearty Seitan roast. We’ll reveal how you can make your own quick-setting stretchy notzarella and a cultured cashew-cream (for vegans and lactose-intolerants missing the sour cream).

This class is perfect for beginners and home cooks who want to learn how to prepare hearty and filling vegan meals.

On the menu
  • crumbed seitan chick’n schnitzel
  • quick & easy creamy “cheese” sauce
  • soft notzarella balls
  • vegan "Brie"
  • cultured cashew cream (with take home with instructions for fermentation)
  • winter warmer Seitan roast with gravy
