Classes will focus on cuisines such as Indian, Italian, Mexican, Thai, Polish, Japanese or Mediterranean – the featured cuisines will be decided by the class. You will learn how to make dishes from each cuisine plant-based, and healthier, with reduced oil (we’ll only use it where it really makes a difference), and healthier, whole foods ingredients.
