The secrets you need to cook vegetables with all their energy.

Ayurveda nutrition is based on the five natural elements: earth, water, fire, air and ether. These are related to six flavours present in food: sweet, salty, bitter, spicy, astringent and acid. Chef Xavier Pellicer, with extensive training and experience among the best restaurants in Spain and France, has investigated how to transfer all this knowledge to his vegetable dishes.

You will learn which vegetables correspond to fire, air, etc. You will discover how to preserve vegetables, the energy within the plant and the best techniques to apply for each of them.

In this online course, you will see examples of the root vegetables, fruits, bulbs and flowers that are best known in our garden.

It is an online course designed for chefs or for lovers of cooking who want to discover new techniques applied to the plant-based cuisine.

In this course, the objective is to produce a menu with organic vegetables, using Ayurvedic nutrition and biodynamics and to learn some secrets that we can practice, such as: salsify skins, the conservation of avocados or the handling of an artichoke.
