Course Description

Do you want to prepare plant-based dishes for the family in short order?

This course introduces concepts, skills and techniques in this genre, including moist, dry and combination heat methods that accentuate this colorful trend.

The movement carries a sense of urgency, as the world faces a triple threat of increased food scarcity, nutrition-based health epidemics, and environmental degradation. A recent report by the EAT-Lancet Commission puts forth a plan to address all three of these issues and sustainably feed an estimated global population of 10 billion by 2050. While the approach is multifaceted, it all begins with food, namely a shift to diets and production rooted in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and plant proteins.
