What is the Demuths Advanced Vegetarian Diploma and who is it for?

The Demuths Advanced Vegetarian Diploma is a specially designed course for chefs and non-professionals alike who wish to advance their technical cooking knowledge and extend their skills. We cover all aspects of modern restaurant vegetarian cooking offering our specialized in-depth knowledge of world cuisines. We will cover modern techniques such as smoking, macerating, pickling and fermenting. Make artisan breads and yeasted cakes and pastries. Learn how to get the most flavour from seasonal vegetables. Create complex spice flavours with tempering and infusing. We will focus on modern presentation skills and make desserts using piping skills and sugar craft.

Suitable for those who are confident cooks with a good understanding of basic cooking techniques.  This course is an excellent extension of our Diploma courses and can also be taken as a stand alone course.

If it wasn't for this course I wouldn't have had the confidence and inspiration to go and approach a top London restaurant and get myself a job there! Thank you so much and I'm sure I'll see you again in the future!

The teachers are fantastic - inspiring, encouraging, always willing to share their impressive knowledge or experience. They are what makes Demuths so special.

I'm feeling really inspired. Thank you for all the support and encouragement, knowledge and enthusiasm! Would definitely recommend a course at Demuths!
