Resources for caterers

The Vegetarian Society has a wealth of information to help you and your business cater for vegetarians. We are an educational charity and are here to help.  

The Vegetarian Society Cookery School

Established in 1982 this unique school based at Parkdale, the home of vegetarianism, is a must for any chef wanting to attract vegetarians through their doors. With an extensive recipe collection, possibly the worlds largest collection of vegetarian cookery books, purpose designed inspiration days and the Cordon Vert Diploma, why would you you learn vegetarian cuisine from anybody else?
