Gourmet Vegetarian/Vegan Passion

Learn some excellent vegetarian recipes from around the world, which have been designed to impress even "non-vegetarians".

With most cuisine cultures offering up their own vegetarian & vegan specialties, join us on this “international vegetarian” class with vegetarian dishes inspired from China, Italy, Morocco and India.

This class is designed to present dishes that you can cater for your vegetarian friends & families, but also be proud to serve to your “non-vegetarian” guests.

Class Menu

eggplant dish_560x840Mushroom San Choy Bau (GF Option) – a twist on the Chinese version of this dish with mushrooms sauteed up in Asian flavours and presented in lettuce cups. (Vegan)

Involtini di Melanzane con Ricotta (GF) – slices of grilled eggplant stuffed with ricotta, basil and toasted pinenuts and served with a lightly spiced Tomato Sauce. (Vegan option available)

Pulled Jackfruit Tacos (GF Option) – even the most die-hard meat eater wouldn’t guess this dish isn’t pork. All the texture and elements of a pulled pork, served up with a handmade BBQ sauce and coleslaw. Delicious! (Vegan)

Red Lentil Indian Sambhar (GF) – it wouldn’t be a vegetarian class without an Indian dish. This is a quick red lentil and vegetable curry from Southern India. (Vegan)

Passionfruit Creme Brûlée (GF) – after all of that healthy vegetarian fare, a decadent tangy, creamy dessert to finish the meal off!

Vegan Dark Chocolate Mousse (GF)


Nico and Belinda, Brilliant creative cuisine evening. Nico you were wonderful making the evening a gourmet delight and you yourself seemingly effortlessly accomplishing various dishes all at different stages of competition with the greatest of ease, a culinary ballet with a touch of panache and Belinda keeping the essential cleaning up etc unseen behind the scenes. Dishes sparkling clean and joining in the culinary conversation along the way. A great team. Such an easy going and jovial couple.  The Gourmet Vegetarian Passion food selection from many and varied world cuisines was an unexpected surprise and a delight of aromatic herbs and spices with a touch or more of chilli thrown in. A very unique slant of introducing a vegetarian cooking option. Loved the whole experience in your beautiful home. Liked your make-shift outdoor pantry. Sort of a European villagey touch. Thank you for a most enjoyable and informative evening and to my friend Sylvia for asking me to come along…Nada


Many thanks Nico & Belinda for hosting a great evening of “Gourmet Vegetarian Passion”, absolutely delicious & even the “Passionfruit Creme Brulee” – as I don’t usually partake in desserts!! Wow, already enjoying the “Cooking Passions – Delicious Journeys” Cookbook as much as the previous one “Food For Friends” & both are really fabulous! Was great to see you both again and safe & happy travels on your upcoming cooking tours…Susan
