The Vegetarian Society Cookery School
Visits catering and hospitality students
18 November 2015
The Vegetarian Society Cookery School were out and about recently visiting NVQ Catering and Hospitality students at St Monica’s R C High School in Prestwich, Manchester. Alex Connell, Principal Tutor at the Vegetarian Society Cookery School, explained what vegetarian and vegans expect from caterers and discussed the choices individuals make about their food before demonstrating a range of dishes including pad Thai, paella and pizza. It was then time for the students to put their aprons on and get cooking in their state-of-the-art training kitchen.
They created a variety of meals, some with a traditional wintery theme such as cottage pie, pickled cabbage, vegetable hot pot, roast vegetable plait and a sausage casserole. Other dishes included Thai curry, gumbo, and spicy chilli. The cookery school visits catering students as part of its outreach programme and this work is kindly funded by legacies.
The Vegetarian Society Cookery School has a range of courses for the general public and those working in the catering industry. Courses are designed to increase knowledge and skills in vegetarian and vegan food. The school is dedicated to teaching small groups in modern training kitchens in Altrincham and London.
The courses are backed by nearly 170 years of Vegetarian Society experience and accredited by the Independent Cookery Schools Association (the school is a founding member of the association).
