An all-day workshop on Labour Day!

Better health, lower food costs, environmental sustainability, animal welfare; there are so many reasons that more people than ever are considering transitioning to a more local, seasonal and plant-based diet. But breaking old eating habits can be challenging, so award-winning Chef Doris Fin has come up with a fun, hands-on introduction to the world of plant-based eating. This full-day class will provide tons of useful information, tips and resources, as well as hands-on experience making a variety of delicious dishes. You’ll leave with the know-how, skills and confidence to embark on your own plant-based culinary adventure!

Morning (10-1)
To start off the workshop participants will dive right into preparing a number of versatile recipes, each showcasing valuable ingredients and techniques in the plant-based kitchen. Along the way there will be plenty of discussion about nutrition, sourcing, flavours, leftovers, and more, and the food will be shared in a fun, family-style lunch.

  • Eggplant Walnut Rolls with a sweet dipping sauce (eggplant and walnuts)
  • Tastes Like Tuna Sushi (sunflower seeds)
