Spring clean your diet and get ready for a healthy summer by learning a recipe or two from an online vegan cooking class. Get creative in the kitchen and learn how to make delicious plant based and vegan from the experts.
Every week Platewell streams fresh, new plant-based cooking classes online. Students can cook along at home, live or on demand. Classes focus on healthy, interesting, and delicious dishes which use whole plant ingredients, and also show you simple, creative ways to plate things with a beautiful touch.
Platewell’s teachers are talented and passionate about inspiring people to discover the joys and benefits of plant-based cooking.
Their experience ranges from working in Michelin star kitchens with Gordan Ramsey and Thomas Keller, to having competed on the Great British Bake Off. Yet they are all wonderfully approachable and authentic, teaching straight from their own home kitchens. If you’re tuning in live you can even chat live questions and comments to the teachers. The experience feels as if you were learning to cook at home with a (very knowledgeable) friend.
When: All Platewell classes are available to watch either live or on demand. A la carte classes are offered on various weeknights and weekends, while their weekly cooking club streams regular classes every Monday at 6.30pm GMT. Meat Free Mondays have never been easier (or more delicious!).
Cost: Classes start at £10 per class, or £20 a month for the weekly Platewell Cooking Club (which works out to just £5 per class).

Blandine is a Macrobiotic Health Coach and Cook, and has studied at the International Macrobiotic School in Devon, as well as Concord Institute in London. She is also an artist and art teacher, and thus is really passionate about passing on the learnings she has gathered over the years.
Her online Macrobiotic cooking classes run for two hours, where both herself and the students cook the meal together. Along the way, she speaks about the meal and its balance from a Macrobiotic’s perspective, taking the meal step by step, as well as answer any questions students may have.
Her meals are delicious and take a modern approach to Macrobiotics. At its core, Macrobiotics is a philosophy of life based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, and its concept of Yin and Yang as the two fundamental energies which constitute the fabric of the Universe. Everything is made of Yin and Yang, and so is food, our body, Nature and animals.
The practice of Macrobiotics can be hugely beneficial to restore a sense of calm and balance in one’s life and body, and to be able to feel how different foods, activities or even jobs may affect us. The aim is to live a more harmonious life, more connected to Nature and Spirit, in alignment with one’s life’s purpose.
Learning how to take care of yourself and your well being, to be responsible for your health and to be available to life in a very different way are the true gifts of Macrobiotics.
When: All upcoming events can be found listed here.
Cost: £40 per person per class
