In plant-based diet, individuals focus on consuming foods like fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains, nuts, seeds, and plant-based alternatives to animal products, such as tofu, tempeh, and plant-based milk.
Plant-based diets are often chosen for various reasons, including health benefits, environmental concerns, and ethical considerations. They are typically low in saturated fat and cholesterol and high in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which can contribute to better overall health. Additionally, plant-based diets are generally considered more environmentally sustainable compared to diets that rely heavily on animal agriculture.
This Diploma focuses on crafting dishes solely from plants, providing a creative repertoire of product knowledge, skills and recipes. The programme has been designed to provide specialised culinary education for the growing demand for plant-based restaurants and products.
