    Did you know?

    There are studies showing that a vegetarian diet could be more natural to humans than a meat-eating diet. Whilst humans are capable of digesting meat, our bodies are actually designed to be herbivores, exemplified by our flat and blunt molars (designed for grinding as opposed to tearing), which resemble those of other herbivores.

    About your host, London Vegetarian School

    We love a bit of vegetarian cooking!

    Whether you are a vegetarian, or vegan, or just want to spice things up in the kitchen - London Vegetarian and Vegan School has you covered.

    Conveniently located by London Bridge, this boutique school offers some classes and courses that traditional cooking schools don't.

    All classes are taught in small sizes so that you get loads of help (even if you are a pro and don't need it, the offer is there!) and advice throughout. This place is all about service and experience, and it shows. The equipment is top-notch and after your daily cooking-workout you are invited to come and hang-out in "the Peacock room", where you can enjoy your tasty food over some Baroque music and a drink (and feel free to invite your friends along too).

    Also, you will learn more than just to cook here, as the teachers run you through additional tips and tricks on how to nail a dinner party at home (we are talking about food presentation, lighting, colours, music , the whole shebang 😃 )

    The schools patrons are members of the former German monarchy.
