Course Offerings


Our full-time programs allow for culinary intensive training, each lesson building upon the previous skills learned, for a strong foundation that allows for mastery of more advanced techniques. Along with our cutting-edge classroom design, our small class sizes allow for personalized, tailored instruction and a truly hands-on experience. Students will leave with the tools to create innovative, healthy, plant-based cuisine furthering their professional goals or transforming their personal lifestyle. Our full-time courses range from one week to four weeks in length. 


Perfect for the working professional, our Night Classes offer a more approachable schedule than our full-time onsite courses. Each evening will consist of recipes and exercises that present the opportunity to master new techniques and challenges that are valuable in both home and professional kitchens. These week-long programs provide a specialized, comprehensive education that will enhance any level of culinary training, without requiring a serious time commitment.


Workshops are a great way to discover the breadth of training PLANTLAB offers—preparation and storage of fermented foods, sports nutrition, knife skills, the basics of raw chocolate and raw bread, and more—but in a way that is highly accessible for busy students. These weekend classes offer a unique opportunity to learn functional skills to incorporate into your plant-based cooking, whether you already working in a professional kitchen or preparing meals for your family.
