After the course was complete, I was able to make different types of Vegan Cheese, distinguish textures and flavours of vegan cheese. Great course also if you are a vegetarian transitioning to vegan. Truly life changing. Brilliant experience.

  • Larissa said: The Easy Peasy Vegan Cheesy course was FANTASTIC!!!! The recipes were easy to follow and tasted AMAZING! The best thing is that they will be easy to replicate at home, so I can impress my family and friends! The instructor was very knowledgeable and willing to share her tips and hints for getting good results every time! I love the fact that if something does go 'wrong', you can still turn your cheese into a slightly different version of cheese and it still tastes great! The people who attended the course last night were very friendly and lots of fun, and Kate, the wonderful coordinator of the evening made everything super fun, as per usual!!!! Another fabulous course at MAKER Kitchen!!! Thank you :)
