    I am glad I stumbled across Vegan Gastronomy

    Posted by Bitnam Singh (UK) on 6th Apr 2024

    I am glad I stumbled across Vegan Gastronomy on YouTube back in 2020. I signed up for the 1 year certification course and have completed level1 intro module and now almost completed the second Cheese making module too. It's amazing what you can do with different ingredients that you would never have thought of doing. Vegan food is not just all about vegetables. The staff have been very supportive.

    Vegan Gastronomy is an amazing culinary school with supportive chefs. I was not able to finish my course on time due to some personal reasons, but the entire team is so understanding that they provided my extension to finish my courses. I will highly recommend to everyone who is passionate about learning vegan cooking.

    very responsive and customer-oriented.

    Posted by Lisa Boesen (USA) on 6th Apr 2024

    I just completed this comprehensive vegan chef class and am extremely pleased with the content and format of the online, self-paced version. Learning international cuisines using plant-based techniques was what I needed for my continued dive into creating plant-based dishes. The Facebook group was a perfect medium to share results, chat with instructors, and learn from other students. The videos were perfect for learning techniques. The level of content is well-designed- some were a bit easier, some more challenging, and considered where you might be, literally, in the world, in regards to access to ingredients or own personal interests. The vast amount of content you receive in regards to tips, tools, recipes, the chemistry behind vegan cooking is informative, concise and immediately useful. I highly recommend this class to anyone who has some kitchen skills and wants to take to them to the next level. Finally, the entire Vegan Gastro business team, is very responsive and customer-oriented. Again, I highly recommend.
