The Vegetarian Society Cookery School


The Vegetarian Society’s pet cookery school has been offering its celebrated Cordon Vert Diploma at its leafy Victorian-mansion HQ since 1984, with the aim of teaching chefs, restaurateurs and caterers the secrets of creating showstopping vegetarian and vegan dishes. As well as the five-day qualification, the school’s tutoring team hosts a packed calendar of one- and two-day workshops and evening courses, covering meat-free cooking in a host of regional culinary traditions – and not necessarily ones known for their vegetarianism. Options include Asian, Caribbean, Spanish and Mexican, but Indian cookery is, perhaps unsurprisingly, one of the school’s greatest strengths. For those who don’t want to get their hands sticky, there are ‘Watch & Learn’ sessions available, where you can witness the making of, and then eat, a four-course vegetarian lunch; and, for young people, the Society offers occasional kids’ classes and a free annual Vegan Venture day for 16–25 year-olds.
