Healthy Plant-Based Fine Cuisine

Discover new flavours, textures and techniques to explore and enjoy the world of the winter-spring vegetable season.

The secrets you need to cook vegetables with all their energy.

Ayurveda nutrition is based on the five natural elements: earth, water, fire, air and ether. These are related to six flavours present in food: sweet, salty, bitter, spicy, astringent and acid. Chef Xavier Pellicer, with extensive training and experience among the best restaurants in Spain and France, has investigated how to transfer all this knowledge to his vegetable dishes.

You will learn which vegetables correspond to fire, air, etc. You will discover how to preserve vegetables, the energy within the plant and the best techniques to apply for each of them.

In this online course, you will see examples of the root vegetables, fruits, bulbs and flowers that are best known in our garden.

It is an online course designed for chefs or for lovers of cooking who want to discover new techniques applied to the plant-based cuisine.

In this course, the objective is to produce a menu with organic vegetables, using Ayurvedic nutrition and biodynamics and to learn some secrets that we can practice, such as: salsify skins, the conservation of avocados or the handling of an artichoke.

At the end of this course you will be able to:
* Classify the vegetables.
* You will learn to liquidise and preserve spinach chlorophyll.
* You will apply 3 different cooking techniques to an artichoke.
In addition to an extensive recipe book by Xavier Pellicer.

Amazing course but it's difficult to follow the subtitling

All the courses are super interesting and iformative, but this one - as im interested especially in contemporary vegetarian cuisine -found superb. However because of this amount of new and extra information it is very hard to follow the subtitling. Plus it is a poor one. Many times the words are doubled, there is not the adequate word used for the context. I really miss the english dubbing. So im giving 5 star for course, but please work on a right english translation. Thanks a lot, Agota
