10 Day Vegan Cooking Immersions

 

“The workshop was a wonderful way to explore new techniques and foods while having fun. Mark is a great teacher wit an enormous amount of knowledge and patience.” Kaiulani Odom, 10-day Vegan Fusion immersion participant

Welcome to the Vegan Fusion Cuisine 5 and 10 day cooking immersions. Mark Reinfeld has been developing vegan and raw food recipes for over 20 years and is excited to share his experience with you. In this course we will go over many of the techniques involved in vegan natural food preparation. Each lesson goes over several of these techniques and includes recipes in which the techniques are used. By learning these various techniques and combining them, we create the full range of vegan cuisine.

10 day vegan cooking training immersionThrough the practice of the techniques, you will feel a renewed confidence in your ability to create unique recipes by the end of the program. The goal is for everyone to be able to look at a recipe (vegan and non-vegan) and come up with several original creations using the recipe as a starting point.

Another one of our goals is to have you think about food in a different way. You will learn about different ethnic cuisines and discover the vast array of delicious vegan food. We will also provide some nutritional information that will demonstrate that all of the body’s nutritional needs can be met, and that you will be able to thrive on a vegan diet.

Each day of the course will begin with a discussion of the day’s lesson. We will discuss each recipe, how it can be used (appetizer, side dish, entrée, etc.) and its possible variations. We will also cover various topics such as nutrition education, ethics/environmental effects/sociological impact of our food choices. We will then move into the kitchen, where we will work together as a team to prepare the day’s recipes. As we do so, we will also creatively present and plate the food. Next comes the best part (of course) when we sit down for a vegan feast with all of the dishes we prepared. We end with clean up, a discussion of the day’s work, and share feedback and suggestions based on your experience. Finally there will be time to go over the lesson exam.

Prepare for a wonderful journey!
