Accademy Overview: Plant Based Academy was created to meet the increasing interest in plant-based cuisine and the art of its preparation. Our raw and vegan culinary approach emphasizes the use of whole, organic, unprocessed, plant-based foods to achieve healthy, aesthetically refined and flavorful cuisine. Intimate classes and personalized instruction allow for a successful integrated hands-on experience, within our custom designed, raw kitchen and our unmatched online platform.

Raw Food Programs: Plant Based Academy offers a variety of programs emphasizing the art, history and science of plant-based cuisine. Curriculum employs a modern, creative approach structured so that students build on their techniques as they progress through courses.

Classical Structure and Professional Chef Skills: Plant Based Academy graduates gain the expertise to create healthy, nutritionally correct, aesthetically refined and flavorful raw and vegan cuisine.

Courses are in line with his professional chef background having run two of his own successful fine dining restaurants, unlike most other raw food educators around the world who are self-taught or mentored by others who have not studied in professional culinary programs.

Creativity and refinement: Plant Based Academy encourages students to explore a passion for raw and vegan cuisine through the real world applications of designing menus and writing recipes from scratch. Instructors promote creativity instead of teaching recipes with pre-measured and limited ingredients. Instructors support student ingredient choices and allergies by teaching how to make adjustments and improvise when working with seasonal and local produce. Chefs often run out of specific produce, spices, ingredients or are restricted by their geographic region or access, it’s crucial to know how to substitute and improvise.

Small Intimate Classes for optimum learning: All our courses have limited class sizes to not compromise the educational experience. Plant Based Academy is entirely chef-driven. It’s essential to understand advanced tools, techniques and equipment for true innovation. Plant Based Academy invests in the highest quality equipment and tools for students who have access to the same equipment company chefs use; high-powered blenders, turning slicers, dehydrators, juicers, raw chocolate tools, fermentation equipment are few of the machines and tools students work with as part of the school curriculum. Online students are guided through equipment and ingredient needs in order to produce a similar experience for the home chef.
