Plant-Based Foods Survey Course

Take the broad view and learn how  to veganize just about anything and get great results. Survey the ingredients used and new food products available that serve as  replacements for eggs, dairy, meat, and seafood.  Receive a resource packet with recipes and consumer information.  

Signature Vegan Meats

Learn how to master the standards; experience making the base for a signature veggie burger, learn fundamental techniques for making vegan sausages, discover how wheat meat and soy products can be used to create an infinite number of plant-based alternatives to traditional meats. 

Many plant-based vegan meats are so incredibly similar in texture and flavor to their animal-based counterparts that when given the taste-test challenge many people can’t tell the difference. Vegan meat, it’s what’s for dinner and the bottom line is a trifecta of wins. Good for our health, good for the environment, good for the animals.

Vegan Seafood  Take your menu to the next level with vegan seafood options. Survey the commercially available products then learn how to use simple ingredients to prepare a variety of incredibly tasteful vegan seafood options.  Recipes and instruction include tips on making No-Fish Tacos, No Shrimp Tacos, Ceviche, Vegan Paella, Vegan Sushi,  Crab Cakes, Mock Tuna Salad, a No-Clam Dip and a Lobster-Free Bisque.






Simple Keys to Success in Vegan Pastry and Baking

So easy, yet so overlooked.  Vegan baked goods are so similar in flavor and texture to their egg and dairy based counterparts that no one would know the difference.  A good slice of cake is just a good slice of cake and cost does not necessarily go up when a recipe is veganized but consumer interest does.  Fill the gap on your menu where there are no vegan baked goods or desserts and watch your sales grow.  Discover a whole new world of baking and opportunity.   Recipes include:  Vegan Chocolate Cheesecake, Key Lime Pie, Fresh Fruit Tarts, Vegan Carrot Cake, German Chocolate Cake, Traditional White Cake, Coconut Wedding Cake, Lemon Layer Cake,  Chocolate Chip Cookies, Brownies, Lemon Bars, Streusel Topped Berry Muffins, Golden Banana Nut Muffins, Carrot Raisin Morning Glory Muffins, Maple Oat Nut Scones,  Pancakes, Waffles, French Toast, Donuts, Strudels, Baklava, Chocolate Confections, Non-Dairy Ice Cream and Sorbet.
