Cook Vegan! Christmas Feast, Manchester – Cooking Workshop and Lunch

 

Sunday 2nd December ‘18

 

Learn to cook and plan a creative, show stopping three course vegan Christmas lunch with support and guidance from Lee Watson, plant-based cook and cookbook author, and the Beach House Kitchen team.

Is this your first vegan Christmas?  Are you cooking for vegans or just interested in trying something new and creative?  Maybe you’re a vegan cook looking for fresh festive foodie inspiration?

This hands on workshop is packed with delicious plant-based alternatives to a traditional Christmas lunch. All dishes are full of bold flavours and textures that everyone will enjoy.

Cook Vegan Xmas will leave you feeling cool, calm and prepared for the great Christmas day cook off!

We’ll cook together a three course meal, making a starter, stunning centre piece and all the trimmings plus a decadent dessert. Many of the dishes you can freeze at home, to be extra prepared for the big day.

You’ll also get a full recipe booklet, including an invaluable timetable, so you can plan your cooking leading up to the big meal, making sure everything is ready at the right time. You’ll also leave with some essentials; stuffing, gravy and cranberry sauce for the freezer.

We have an excellent venue, with fully licensed bar and fresh tea and coffee available.

Anyone familiar with Lee’s cooking will know that the recipes are going to be creative but not overly time consuming or complex. Christmas day is about finding a balance between delicious dishes and straightforward preparation. Leaving more time to raise a glass or two and enjoy the day with friends and family. He’ll even make you fall in love with Brussels Sprouts. It is possible!

Cook Vegan Xmas will provide you with new techniques and tricks, plus you’ll leave the day feeling confident that 2018 will be the best vegan Christmas lunch yet!

Vibrant Vegan Manchester – What a weekend!!

Vibrant Vegan Manchester in full swing

 What a weekend!  We took our Vibrant Vegan workshop to the North West and loved every minute!!

 

On Saturday we got set up and then explored Manchester, a vegan paradise for sure, loads of amazing vegan restaurants.  Then Sunday, BOOM!, Vibrant Vegan kicked off in the awesome Food Sorcery in Didsbury.

Umami burgers with pressed salad and avocado – some of the amazing food produced by the vibrant vegans on the day!

The snow caused some problems for people travelling, anyone who couldn’t make it, we’ll see you in the autumn hopefully!  Everyone who did brave the elements, what an lovely group!  We shared a top day of cooking and getting to know each other.  I’m blown away at how well people work together and share cooking skills and good times.

The food all looked and tasted amazing and was ready bang on time, what an achievement, considering it was quite a complex menu and we’re all working in a new kitchen.

The kitchen buzzing with activity. Awesome to see:)

 

“…The day was an absolute eye opener for me. I found my self surrounded by really inspiring and enthusiastic vegan cooks..immersed in a world of new flavours and exciting alchemy. Lee created a relaxed, lively and great fun learning environment. Each dish was orchestrated with time for questions and ladles of encouragement. His team were Lovely; they worked really hard to ensure that everything was at hand, washed up immediately, so we could all focus purely on the glorious creations.  I enjoyed every minute of the day, and the superbly equipped venue and location was perfect.” Anita

 

We all then sat down to enjoy the gifts of our hard work, a healthy soul food feast; Umami burgers, Mexican Brownies with Dulce de Leche, Sweet Potato Mac and Cheese, BBQ Pulled Jackfruit, Mushroom Bacon with Chipotle Mayo. Yum!!

Vibrant vegans washing up;)

Thanks to all who came and contributed in such an open hearted way.  You’re amazing!!

I even do the waiting on tables;)  Lunch time

Plus, big thanks to Unicorn Groceries for being one of the coolest shops we’ve ever visited, plus Network News North Wales for delivering our recipe booklets mid Siberian blizzard, Tyddyn Teg Farm for picking our organic veggies in the snow and Mandy, Mark and Jane, the vibrant vegan crew, plus all those who stayed at the end to help wash up.  Legends!!

Also huge thanks to Food Sorcery for accommodating the BHK’s many needs;)  So much good will and kindness coming together to make a very tasty and fun event.  Thanks to all!!  See you soon back in the North West.

Nita loving the burgers and the brownies:)

“Soul Food with Lee was a raucous feast of creativity and deliciousness! We cooked for hours, and scoffed our way through our creations: mac n cheese, BBQ-pulled jackfruit, caramel sauce, n’ice cream brownies, burgers and mayo…and all vegan? Magic. His supportive facilitation and teaching allowed us to relax right into the cooking, playing with new tastes and techniques. As a non-vegan, I’ve come away feeling totally inspired about the food I put into my body (if you don’t know about how amazing black beans are yet, look them up), making some more vegan choices, and proudly cooking a few more vegan meals for my family. If you’re looking for new possibilities to unleash your kitchen creativity, get yourself down to the Beach House Kitchen.”  Rhiannon

Our workshops are a mix of demonstrations and loads of hands on cooking.  This was all about Aquafaba.

Happy cooking, L+J:)x
