Weekend ESSENTIALS | Sweet

The Sweet Weekend Essential 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 weekend making, eating and enjoying the best raw plant-based desserts that life has to offer.

The Sweet weekend intensive is your essential first step to becoming a raw pastry chef.

During Sweet, you will learn about the equipment you would expect to find in a raw desserts kitchen, the raw desserts pantry, raw flours, sugars and setting agents. You will make raw plant-based gluten free sweet short crust pastry, dairy free vanilla cream and a classic range of desserts from brownies and rippled cheesecakes to delicious layered cakes and crème patisserie tarts.

All the desserts can be achieved at home with a blender, freezer and optional dehydrator. 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.

Lunch is provided on this course, and you will take home all of your items in patisserie boxes.

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 Tote bag with goodies and a folder of notes to take away. Places limited to only 4 people per course.

Vegan, raw and plant-based. Gluten-free and dairy-free.
