How the Diploma works

Our intensive Cordon Vert Professional Chefs’ Diploma programme aims to train participants in all aspect of vegetarian catering over just a few days.

We start off with practical workshops aiming to give our students a foundation base in vegetarian cuisine, techniques and food flavouring. Although the course is mainly practical it also includes a mixture of tutor talks and group projects.

Topics cover understanding vegetarian diets and nutrition, looking at suitable ingredients, how to avoid common pitfalls and providing solutions to unfortunately recurring problems. The course steadily progresses to cover advanced menu planning, dietary restrictions and fine dining.

A practical exam is held on the final day of the course before students are presented with their well earned Cordon Vert Diploma.

Group Bookings

For groups of three or more people discounts are available with a choice of dates to suit our schedule.
