Vegetarian Mexican cooking is a consistently rewarding journey of flavours combining grains, pulses, spices and vegetables. With unparalleled and comforting fragrances and tastes no matter which dish you try, there is so much to offer.

With a heavy Central American and Spanish influence, beans and corn feature frequently in a cuisine perfectly suited to vegan adaptations, So come and harness these flavours in our kitchen and take them home to yours.

Recipes we are likely to make include:

  • Chipotle
  • Corn Bread
  • Tres Leches Cake
  • Huevos Rancheros
  • Flautas
  • Marinated Chili & Artichoke Salad
  • Arroz Verde

Above recipes are subject to availability of ingredients.

We want you to truly love your cookery experience with us, so here is a little more information about how the day will run – that way the only thing you need to think about is having a great time!

What to expect… 

We welcome students of all abilities, so whatever your current skill level, you’ll fit right in. And you don’t have to be veggie to enjoy our courses – everyone’s welcome! Our cookery experiences will help you hone your cooking skills in a fun and friendly atmosphere. You’ll dive right in with hands-on practical cookery sessions, under the expert guidance of our experienced tutors, who will share their wealth of knowledge with you. Attendee numbers are kept small so you’ll have maximum contact with the tutors – and there will be plenty of opportunities throughout the day to ask any questions you may have.

What you’ll need to bring…

Here at the Vegetarian Society Cookery School we try to be as environmentally friendly as possible. With this in mind, it is helpful if you can bring a few reusable containers with you to take home some of the food you cook (there are usually leftovers!) However, don’t worry if you don’t have any – we can provide food containers if needed.

What else you need to know…

All ingredients and equipment for the course are provided for you, and you will receive your own recipe pack to take home containing all the recipes you’ll make on the day.

We have lots of free car parking available on site. If you’re getting here by public transport, we are only a short taxi ride or a 20 minute walk from Altrincham bus station/train station/Metrolink (Altrincham line). Here’s our address: Vegetarian Society Cookery School, Parkdale, Altrincham, Greater Manchester, WA14 4QG.

As soon as you get here, we’ll make sure you’ve got a cup of tea or freshly-brewed coffee to help make you feel right at home (and we also have a water cooler if hot drinks aren’t your thing). We’ll make sure refreshments are provided throughout the day – there’s no need to bring any with you.

On our cookery experiences, there’s always loads of food being made – and this will be part of your lunch, so there’s no need to bring any lunch with you either!

We have Vegetarian Society Cookery School aprons for students to use on the courses – and if you really like them, they are available to purchase at the school.

Throughout the day, there are lots of opportunities to take photos/videos (which are great for sharing on social media), so feel free to get your phones or cameras out and snap away! The only thing we ask is that you check with the other students if they are in any photos you want to put on social media.

If you have any other questions about your course, you can always give us a call on 0161 925 2000 (9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday) – we’re happy to help.

And finally: enjoy yourself!
