Plates London launch Plates At Home, a unique cookery course that empowers consumers to create plant-based, restaurant quality food at home.
Whether vegetarian, vegan, flexitarian or just love vegetables Ã¢â‚¬â€œ food lovers will discover how to turn the humble into the heroic and learn a whole new language of cooking.
Founded in 2017 by brother and sister team Keeley and Kirk Haworth, Plates London are now on a mission to bring their personal style of plant-based into people’s homes in an accessible and affordable way.
Plates At Home will teach people how to create showstopping plant-based food, whilst educating on the Plates approach and helping others explore and enjoy a plant-based lifestyle.
With an ethos that combines old-world training with new-world techniques, Chef Co-Founder Kirk takes plant-based as a starting point to create dishes that are inspiring but achievable, and can be easily incorporated into daily life.
Kirk’s ambition isn’t to create meat and fish alternatives or quick fixes – rather to show people how vegetables are substantial, adaptable and with the right care and cooking can be the star of the show, everyday.
Over seven-lessons and during the 20 – 40 minute videos, Kirk will teach people the foundations of his vegetable cookery. From knife skills to plating, you’ll learn lasting techniques to help with weekday cooking through to hosting impressive dinner parties.
With recipes ranging from snacks to mains, the first iteration of Plates at Home launches with a seasonal Summer menu. Savoury dishes will include Sweet tomato & red onion tart, Pea, mint and pomegranate risotto, Golden katsu nuggets with charred greens & black rice and the crispiest Potato rosti pizza.
A take on the classics is a theme for this season’s desserts (all vegan as standard), from pavlova with poached peach and cacao to summer berry mille feuille and vanilla creme.
It has been well documented the positive impact a switch to a more plant based diet, even if just once a week, can have on both people and planet. It was a combination of personal health and this passion for nature that led Kirk Haworth to first discover the power of plants.
With Kirk’s Michelin trained background and Keeley’s experience in content and creative, the duo challenge vegan stereotypes and together in their Hackney development studio create original concepts and boundary-pushing recipes that celebrate all nature has to offer.
Plates London will release four seasonal cookery courses a year, with the first course, Summer’20, being available for purchase and download throughout August to end of September.
Each course includes eight classes which will focus on skills and recipes that use ingredients that are affordable and accessible.
Plates London’s cooking school launches Tuesday 11th August. £35 for the full course.
