Cook Vegan! Spanish Fiesta Feast, Manchester
Sunday 30th September ‘18
Discover new cooking skills at this hands on vegan cooking workshop led by Lee Watson (author ‘Peace and Parsnips’ and beachhousekitchen.com). Learn delicious and creative tips and techniques to make healthy, home cooked plant-based meals an everyday reality.
Lee is in love with Spain, his family have a home on the coast in Murcia. He has spent many years cooking and travelling there and this summer hosted a cooking retreat in a beachside villa.
These vibrant Spanish recipes have been developed recently, most are classic dishes veganized, with all the fresh and satisfying Mediterranean flavours we adore.
We’ll be using the very best local and seasonal produce to cook a Spanish Fiesta Feast::
A show stopping Wild Mushroom Paella
Light and fluffy Baked Pea, Lemon and Mint Tortillas with Garlic Mayo
Rich and more-ish Andalusian Chickpeas
Dessert will be a twist on a classic Spanish Custard Tart, we’ll make:
Mini Chocolate Custard Pies
All dishes are gluten and sugar free, but still decadent!
Lee and his team will also be preparing a Mandarin, Red Onion and Black Olive Salad, plus a Almond Horchata to sample on arrival. The best bit is, we’ll all sit down together at the end to enjoy our tasty creations. If the weather is nice, maybe we can even eat outside on the terrace, overlooking the river Mersey.
Spain is changing, with more and more vegan options and restaurants appearing, but many dishes are still based on meat and fish. Lee would like to show you how to get big flavours and the right textures, using only plant-based ingredients. It is more than possible!
Lee will share his passion for all things healthy, vegan and of course, Spain. He will demonstrate some techniques and dishes, but mainly you’ll be cooking in small teams, working together at well equipped kitchen stations with constant support from the Cook Vegan! team.
We’ll be cooking dishes with big, bold flavours and colours. With winter just round the corner, these are satisfying classics, ensuring you have the healthy comfort food recipes you need to see you through a very tasty winter. Food that is rich and gorgeous but also nourishing and packed with nutrients. A happy balance!
You’ll leave with a full recipe booklet and information on plant-based nutrition, so you can try out all the dishes at home for yourself. The recipes are flexible, so once you’ve learned the technique for say, a great paella or tortilla, you can use different ingredients, or whatever’s in the fridge.
This is Lee’s second visit to the Food Sorcery kitchen, a brilliant, modern venue. Judging by last time, the weekend will sell out quickly.
On this cooking workshop you’ll learn:
- How to make a perfect vegan paella, quick and simple
- How to select and properly store delicious mushrooms
- Secrets behind a light vegan tortilla/ omelette
- How to press and drain tofu before use
- Vegan custard technique and a healthy pie crust
