Introduction to Plant Based Cookery - Bridgwater & Taunton College

Course Overview

Plant based cooking is increasing in popularity more and more, some people are making the change for environmental, health and ethical reasons. This course is designed for people that would like to learn some tips and tricks for including more plant based dishes into everyday meals. This is not about replacing all animal protein, it is aimed at increasing your confidence to try new things and experiment with alternatives.

We will also look at some traditional vegetarian dishes that may have a large impact environmentally and give you an alternative, you will create your very own ‘no avocado on toast’ to start your morning with brunch.

The course makes use of the incredible facilities of the Quantock Restaurant. The day will be packed with a hands on workshop, learning how to make a variety of plant based dishes to create your very own Saturday night fake away!
As well as your Indian themed Saturday evening meal you will also take home a handy booklet with the recipes so you can create the dishes again and again adding your own tweaks.

Make sure you wear comfy shoes as you will be on your feet for the majority of the day and our kitchen uses induction hobs so please be aware that this may not be appropriate for anyone with a pacemaker.

We will welcome you with a coffee, tea and have water available but please bring any other refreshments you may require.
