The Best Plant Based Cooking Classes in Dublin

Below you will find the top Plant-Based or Vegan cooking classes available in Dublin. I have personally experienced all of these and found them all to be highly useful in learning not only practical recipe elements and cooking skills, but the cultivating of knowledge of flavours, substituting ingredients an nutritional information.

All classes are run multiple times a year, and some are sold out at this time. Bookings can be made by clicking the image related to each post, which leads to the relevant site. Classes are a great way to transition to this way of eating, as well as meet others undertaking the same journey.
