Opened in 2001 The Vegetarian Cookery School, set in the
beautiful spa city of Bath, is run by professional chef and
restaurateur Rachel Demuth- a pioneer of vegetarian, vegan and
organic cooking. Rachel specialises in unpretentious, creative and
healthy food for anyone wishing to learn to cook without fish or
meat, and translates the approach to her cookery school.
The courses are highly instructive, hands on courses, catering
for mixed abilities- from the greenest beginner to the highly
experienced. Courses aim to provide inspiration and ideas that are
easily achievable back at home, through a mix of hands-on cooking
and demonstration, with an emphasis on simplicity and fun.
Choose from one of more than 20 courses, including Fast and
Delicious or Quick and Easy Italian for those short of time.
Mediterranean Feast and Flavours of Italy will appeal to those who
enjoy zippy, vibrant European lifestyles, whilst Thai, Vietnamese,
Mexican, Moorish and Southern Indian may be favoured by the more
adventurous worldwide traveller. Supplementary courses will focus
on healthy eating and special diets, such as Gluten Free, which
will be of particular interest and benefit to celiacs, other
courses will appeal to Vegans.
Each course caters for a maximum of 16 people cooking 10
different dishes on each day. At the end of the day students enjoy
the food they've created along with organic wines. One-day courses
run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and cost £135. Evening Courses cost £45
from 6pm until 9pm. Young Chef courses cost £75 from 10am until
The course fee includes all ingredients and a course recipe
