Join James de Burca of renowned Dublin Vegetarian and Whole-food Restaurant Cornucopia and pick up some great tips for incorporating a vegan, plant based regime into your diet.
Looking to demystify the concept of vegan food, James will teach you about innovative "free from" contemporary, cooking methods. You don't have to be a vegan to attend this course!
James has been working with Cooks Academy for a number of years now and we love teaming up with him to deliver this excellent half day vegan cooking class. You can read James's biography here.

Here is what Nicola, one of our former Certificate students said about our Vegan Session:
"James' alternatives are incredibly creative and packed full of flavour, although it wasn't long before the crowd was split over his innovative use of avocado in a chocolate torte! Avocado aside we were won over by his Tempeh fajitas! Tempeh is a traditional soy product that binds soybeans into a cake form, through a controlled fermentation process, an ingredient none of the group had cooked with before but definitely something we would all try out now! Staying with the alternative theme today's menu gave me the flexibility to create all paleo dishes while still keeping in line with the skills and techniques being taught, which was fantastic!"
Cornucopia also has a wonderful Cookbook which, we in Cooks Academy use all the time, called Cornucopia at Home.
Just around the corner from Cooks Academy on Wicklow Street is Cornucopia.
A much loved and famed Vegetarian and Wholefood Restaurant with an an attractive and comfortable casual area, the restaurant first opened its doors in January 1986 and since then it has been part of the fabric of Dublin.
