Vegetarian Cuisine Cooking Workshop

Morning:  9 am to 12 pm
Afternoon: 1 pm to 4 pm

Providence Zen Center hosts International Chef Miguel De Haro (www.larutaverde.es) in a unique gourmet experience.

Participants will learn to create confidence in their vegetarian cooking skills as Chef Miguel guides them through each aspect of seven recipes, from cutting and prep to finished meals. Small teams work together to prepare dishes for lunch and dinner from the same main ingredients. Chef Miguel will teach how to be a great gourmet by facilitating each group’s discovery of vegetable, protein and spice combinations. Team’s recipes will be tasted and rated in a friendly competition.

Arrive at 8:45 am to complete registration, then head to the large Providence Zen Center kitchen to make your teams. The morning will be spent preparing recipes for lunch and components for dinner. Enjoy your team’s creation for lunch, take a recess in the serene Zen Center setting, and start the afternoon with dinner’s preparations. Taste what other teams have created while Chef Miguel scores each team’s dishes. Winning team gets a prize!
