London Vegetarian and Vegan School extends well beyond an average cookery school; it is in effect a lifestyle centre. The concept originated in the Alte Forsthaus in Frankfurt which moved to Hampstead in 1989 followed by London Bridge to the current location; the artist’s quarter in Forest Hill.
Veganism has changed over the last few years and we have introduced a greater number of vegan cooking workshops in our programme. We avoid introducing highly processed manufactured vegan ingredients but instead prefer to create our very own – eggs being a good example.
This collage of information is to demystify the art of cooking and sometimes it means going back to basics in order to get a thorough grounding and understanding of cooking essentials which so often this level of information and detail one cannot find nor read in glossy magazines. Most important to qualify all the above is personal attention to individuals and hands on experience so one gets the opportunity to try out different knives and associated skills, types of professional pans and their applications and in this process instill both confidence and kitchen management making cooking experience days more enjoyable.
For us the cookery classes in London we offer are just one element; how you deliver, present, organise a dinner party, set the environment which includes lighting, music and colours are all important which we coach our students on our profi week long courses.
The school has a special place in London Society and the cuisine school’s patrons are members of the former German monarchy.
Great venue, knowledgeable teacher.
Really enjoyed learning new skills and cooking lots of recipes.
Would recommend to anyone wanting to pick up some new cooking skills and recipes.

Great intensive course, lots to learn and lots of recipes.
This was my first experience of a cookery lesson and i would recommend this for new ideas and a great way to spend a day learning new skills.
From the moment we entered the venue, we knew we made the right choice.
We were welcomed with coffee and then introduced into the kitchen.
We were taught how to properly use a knife (my wife said it was the finest she ever cut before), given the recipes and were guiding the entire way, but done everything ourselves.
Everything was very pleasant and enjoyable (mainly the food).
I hope to soon start integrating what we learned into my cooking.
An incredible experience!
We cooked a variety of dishes and learned some things to try at home.
Francesco was very welcoming, gave clear instructions, and answered all of our questions.
The workshop included a lunch break in which we got to relax and eat the food we cooked.
Highly recommended to beginners and experts alike.
A really engaging and enjoyable class. The teacher was very friendly and knowledgable about the cuisine and cooking techniques but made the class a welcome space so people felt comfortable to ask questions. I would say I'm an intermediate cook and I think the class was helpful for everyone, it re-enforced old techniques and I learnt new techniques.
Great course, learnt lots and Francesco was very knowledgeable and patient. Would definitely recommend this course
