A plant-based diet is an excellent way to eat for health. If you’re looking to improve your health or thinking of moving to a plant-based diet and need some inspiration, join Chef Darrin as he shares his favourite dishes and best hacks for a plant-based diet at this cooking class in Sydney.

During this fun and interactive class, enjoy cooking some of your own dishes while Darrin demonstrates some extra dishes for you to recreate at home. Enjoy all your dishes or take some tasters home for later.  All recipes will be supplied to take home.

Learn pulled jackfruit taco, plant-based mac and cheese and Darrin's eggless scramble. Or nifty ideas for plant-based catering such as home-made crackers with various toppings, nut milk like almond, turmeric latte, coconut yoghurt, kombucha and sauerkraut. Classes are run often and the menu will change frequently so that you can keep coming back to learn more and more creative plant-based dishes.

Darrin looks forward to sharing his passion for plant-based cuisine and hopes to inspire more people to be creative with vegetarian catering.

Darren worked to make the recipes and techniques accessible and show us how to apply them in real life, while explaining why they worked. Thanks Darren for a great class!

We really enjoyed the lesson from Chef Darrin. It was very practical, hands on and tasty. The venue was great for a medium group size and plenty of space for each group to have their own space. There were helpful tips and techniques shared and no judgement felt. We would recommend this experience 100%.

Great class. I would have liked to see more healthy nutrition showcased. I did this class because I need to reduce my red meat intake and increase my veg in my diet. There was a lot of oil and sauces used which could have been reduced

Devon Rees Apr 2021


We did the vegan cooking class. All the materials and utensils provided were really good quality.
We managed to get through quite a few recipes which were flavourful and interesting, while being simple to make.
The instructor was very friendly and inviting. He was very willing to share his approach to food and ways we could make the dish our own.

Overall it was a good night with just the right amount of people so not to be too overcrowded. Would come again.
