Workshop Vegan Italian
Do you love Italian cuisine (and fresh pasta) as much as we do, but find it a bit of a challenge how to make those delicious dishes in a plant-based version? Then this Vegan Italian workshop run by the Vegan Academy is for you.
Italian cuisine is internationally known for its delicious and healthy dishes, but vegan versions of these dishes can be a challenge. Most of these classics contain meat, fish or dairy. The Vegan Academy has developed fully-fledged vegan versions of some famous Italian classics that taste at least as good as the original. In this workshop, you will learn how to prepare these recipes and of course, enjoy eating them.
What does the workshop Vegan Italian look like?
We start off with a demo of professional cutting techniques so you can get down to business like a real chef. We take a look on the secrets of fresh pasta making: what kind of flour you need and what durum wheat flour is, how a pasta machine works and whether you really need one, how to make ravioli and what is the best way to cook pasta. Then we take a brief look at the most important plant-based ingredients that suit the Italian style of cooking and the cooking techniques that help create great vegan Italian foods. We also take a look at the possible substitutes for cheese and other dairy products. We take a look at how you can apply this style to your local vegetables and products. Then we start cooking. During this workshop, together with your fellow participants and under the supervision of our chef, we will create nine recipes that together form a delicious and lavish, but also very healthy meal. Finally we all sit down and eat our self-prepared Italian menu in the way it looks at its best: as a shared dinner, accompanied by a nice glass of one or the other and a good conversation.
