Plant-based Cooking


This course is an opportunity to rediscover plants, pulses and cereals in a way that will bring out their full splendour in colourful, delicious dishes. Put mother nature at the heart of your dishes and turn seasonal constraints into a true source of inspiration.  These days, plant-based cooking is more than ever a response to concerns about healthy eating.
