After a welcome drink (coffee, tea, smoothie) and introduction, we will cook together a full plant-based brunch inspired by my French origins. We will use our 5 senses and explore the 5 flavours (sweet, salty, sour, bitter and umami) to create a feast for the eyes and the mouth, eating responsibly. Participants will prepare the recipes alone or in groups of 2 and I will share tips. The menu: - Saisonal rainbow salad with greens and other vegetables (raw and roasted), dried fruit and nuts, herbs with the best citrus vinaigrette - Sweet potato and spinach waffles with tofu dip, hummus - Vegan cheese: Cashew nut cream cheese and coconut Boursin - Home-made Granola served with coconut yogurt and home made berry compote - Seasonal fruit cake (Autumn: Moist Apple cake) Most of the ingredients we use are seasonal, organic and locally sourced. When everything is ready, we will sit down and enjoy what we have prepared together. While we eat, I will be happy to share information about plant-based shopping, cooking and eating in London.
I founded Cook and Speak, a French language and culinary experience, 5 years ago. I have taught adults, teens and children, from all kinds of nationalities, backgrounds and culinary tastes. Since moving to London 2 years ago, I have explored veganism, and started to teach plant-based cooking in English at home and for a community food kitchen. I want to share my passion for cooking and enjoying food good for the senses, the planet and the people, beautifully presented following the French rituals of the table.

The class takes place in my own kitchen and dining room in a beautiful mews of West London. Mews houses were originally intended to stable horses, with accommodation above for servants. They are now typical residencies for people who want space, peace and "village life style" in the centre of London.The location is not far from London’s ‘golden triangle’ of museums – Natural History Museum, Science Museum and V&A.
This experience is not suitable for people with nut allergy. Please notify me with any food allergies, intolerances or specific diet requirements other than veganism.
