Ahtens - Modern Vegetarian Cuisine Course

This is just a short blog to share a few photos from the course I recently taught in Athens. You can see a full gallery of around 60 images from the course by clicking here.

The course was titled 'Modern Vegetarian Cuisine' and was targeted at chefs working in high end restaurants and hotels, organised by
Gastronomy Essentials.

I showed 22 dishes over two full days of teaching and we served tasters with every dish, so it was a very ambitious programme and a lot of hard work, but with the help of the fantastic team I had it went brilliantly and we got an overwhelmingly enthusiastic response from the 50 chefs attending the course.

I'd like like to especially thank Harry from
Gastromony Essentials for organising the course, Fay for heading up the kitchen team, and the rest of the chefs I worked with for all their hard work, as well as the chefs attending the course for their enthusiasm.

If you are interested please take a look at the
full gallery and look out for information on things like this that I’m up to by following me on the Blog, Twitter and Facebook

Modern Vegetarian Cuisine Course - Athens


I will be teaching this course in Athens in february 2015.

The focus of the course is modern vegetarian cuisine and I’ll cover a lot of topics over the two days, introducing and explaining techniques through a series of my own modern dishes which I will present, along with tasters.

I’m still finalising the dishes for the course but some things that will definitely be covered include -

Vegetarian applications of sous vide
Vegetarian uses of transglutaminace
Sous vide ‘caramelisation’ in various products
Using seaweeds
Umami in vegetarian cooking
Vegetarian gelling agents and techniques
Various vegan desserts
Modern presentation and ideas
and much more...

I hope you can join me in Athens in 2015

All the best
