Learn how to cook vegan and expand your healthy horizons!
The word “vegan” comes from the word “vegetarian.” First used in 1944 by Elsie Shrigley and Donald Watson as they thought that the word “vegetarian” included too many types of animal by-products and did not encompass a completely plant-based diet. Shrigley and Watson founded the UK Vegan Society and defined veganism as a philosophy and lifestyle that tries as much as possible to exclude all kinds of explotation of, and cruelty to animals.
Whether you’re a committed vegan, or would just like to brush up your skills to cook for friends, this course will give you exactly what you need. You will learn kitchen skills and how to plan recipes. At the end, you eat the dishes you have prepared.
In the first part of the class, you will learn all the basic-but-amazing kitchen skills (such as knife skills, how to plate like the pro’s, how to interpret and plan new recipes, just to name a few). After mastering the basics you will learn to cook:
We hate it when we hear people say that Vegan food is boring, this class aims to prove that vegan food can both be exciting and delicious. Our chefs have an impressive repertoire of dishes which they will share, plus many tips and techniques to ensure you have confidence when cooking vegetarian food.
After all the learning you get to eat your dishes with fellow Obby friends and you will go home feeling confident in the kitchen using only vegan ingredients.

The Avenue Cookery School is a family-run leaning business based in Wandsworth in South West London. The owner and head chef Diana began her career as a chalet chef before discovering her entrepreneurial side and founding a number of specialist food ventures. Infamously, Diana taught at The Grange Cookery School in Somerset for 7 years before starting The Avenue, where she has been ever since.
Diana is supported by her son Richard and daughter Sophie.
The food at The Avenue can be considered classic chic but full of fun twists and turns (ranging from macaroon masterclasses to gluten free baking to simple supper classes). All the classes are taught in the school's beautiful kitchen facilities in a relaxed environment.
