Coleg y Cymoedd is set to offer a unique course aimed at caterers to encourage cooking that is suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
An exciting new part time course has been specially developed for caterers to study the art of vegetarian cookery. Endorsed by vegetarian and vegan Campaigning Charity Viva!, the course is designed to encourage individual talent and creativity in this specialist area of cookery.
Professional caterers looking to experiment with vegetarian and vegan cuisine will learn different dietary requirements for health ethics and religion, enhanced creativity with colours and flavours to create exciting dishes, the art of creating simple dishes inexpensively, and reflection on current food trends with ideas that are fresh and original.
Coleg y Cymoedd’s fantastic catering facilities, and having a qualified Chef/Nutritionist and practicing vegan as Course Facilitator, put it in the prime position to promote and deliver vegan cuisine.
The course is set to put Wales on the map for healthy eating and inclusiveness of a huge variety of different tastes and preferences.
Course Coordinator Valerie Smith said: “I am very excited to get this programme off the ground; it will be fantastic to increase the options available for Vegans, vegetarians and people with Celiac disease in the local area by training increasing numbers of caterers.”
This exciting course will be offered at the Nantgarw campus of Coleg y Cymoedd and will run from 23rd September 2014 for six weeks on Tuesday evenings between 5pm and 8pm. The cost per person is £215. For more details please contact Client Services & Business Enterprise on 01443 663024 or email Jayne.Jones@cymoedd.ac.uk.
