Southern Italy has always been a vegetarian haven; influenced by economics, Saracen history and climate. Whilst it's the home for well known pasta and pizza dishes, the culinary repertoire extends well beyond these all too familiar foods.
We venture out of the big cities and share some of the region's recipes. The emphasis here is "cucina casalinga" which is best described as home cooking although we do celebrate the course with some gourmet delights too.
Tomatoes are a favourite ingredient and despite our familiarity with them, often they are cooked incorrectly - this class will teach you how to do it properly, the Amalfi way.
In addition, you will cook melanzane, fennel and artichokes infused with lemon, veg Puttanesca, mushroom drenched in wine and much more.
There will be a cocktail break after your hands on workshop and you can opt to dine in and eat the delicious food you have created with the group or take it home to enjoy with family and friends.
In the morning session you will have time for 3-4 recipes.

We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
About your host, London Vegetarian School
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.
