The Sweet Essential course is for you if you simply LOVE all things indulgent, naughty and delicious and yet want to eliminate refined sugar, dairy and gluten in your desserts. It is also for you if you can think of nothing better than to spend a day making, eating and enjoying the best raw plant-based desserts that life has to offer.

This one day course is your essential first step to becoming a raw pastry chef.

We start the day with refreshments and treats from the Deliciously Raw kitchen with an explanation on different ingredients that are used in raw desserts.  Then you will prepare cookies and learn how to make ice cream for ice-cream sandwiches which you can enjoy at the end of the day after all your hard work.

You will learn the principles of making raw plant-based gluten free sweet short crust pastry for strawberry tarts and key lime tart and you’ll make delicious whipped crème patisserie and key lime fillings. You’ll learn the secrets of crafting a delicious red velvet cheesecake with chocolate ice cream.  Finally you’ll be whipping up a delicious tiramisu, have fun making your toffee apple slices and fudgy chocolate truffles and packaging them up to take home.

All the desserts can be achieved at home with regular equipment such as a blender and food processor in your kitchen. You can have the satisfaction of knowing exactly what is in your pastries – plus you can save yourself a small fortune on shop bought healthy options when you know how to make them yourself.

During Sweet, you will have your own workstation and equipment for a full hands on experience and each course includes a Deliciously Raw Culinary School bag with notes to take away.

“I love to cook, eat, entertain and grow things. I’d always thought of ‘raw food’ diets as faddy and probably boring. Deborah’s incredibly accessible and entertaining training has changed my perspective. As well as introducing some key techniques, explaining the benefits and principles, she proved that raw food could be treat rather than torment. The recipes are easy to follow and the taste luxurious and delicious. I would highly recommend Deborah’s courses to anyone who is interested in adding another string to their culinary bow or explore the health and vitality benefits of raw food.”
