Practical classes

Whilst raw plant-based cuisine breaks the mould in terms of how food is created, we use common reference points that you would find in classical cookery to enable you to gain a deeper understanding of the science behind raw food preparation. Courses take a structured approach enabling you to build your knowledge and with confidence. Through the course programme you have the opportunity to produce raw food to an advanced level and create and adapt recipes of your own.


Deliciously Raw Kitchen emphasises the use of quality organic fresh nutritious ingredients combined with teaching you the skills to be able to prepare them well.

We have a wide pantry of rare condiments and seasonings for you to experience.  We are able to source some pretty amazing ingredients. 

We are lucky to have some fabulous organic market gardens in our area. 

Depending on the time of year, there may be produce in our veggie beds, herbs and edible flowers in the garden. There is also food that can be foraged from the surrounding woodlands.


More than ever today people want to learn to prepare raw plant-based food well and with confidence. Whether for wellness retreats, delis and restaurants or for personal catering, there are a growing number of global opportunities for people who can prepare raw food well. These professional intensives are suitable for those who enjoy a hands-on approach and the courses are accredited by The Vegetarian Society, UK.
