Learn the secrets to capturing the energy of vegetables

Ayurveda nutrition is based on the five natural elements: earth, water, fire, air, and space. These are related to six flavors present in food: sweet, salty, bitter, spicy, astringent, and acidic. Chef Xavier Pellicer, who has extensive experience from working in the best restaurants in Spain and France, has explored how to transfer this concept to his plant-based dishes.

You will learn which vegetables correspond to fire, air, etc. You will discover the energy that exists in each plant, what are the best techniques to take advantage of their energy, and how to care for them.

In this online course, you will see examples of some of the best known root vegetables, fruits, bulbs, and flowers to be found in the garden.

This is a course designed for chefs or for cooking  enthusiasts who want to discover new techniques for working with a plant-based cuisine.

 The objective of this course is to produce a menu with organic vegetables, using the principles of Ayurvedic nutrition and biodynamics to learn some secrets that we can practice on our own. For example, learn the value of salsify peel, how to care for avocados, and how to handle artichokes.

By the end of this course you will be able to:

* Classify vegetables 

* Liquify and store spinach chlorophyll

* Apply 3 different cooking techniques to an artichoke. 

 Plus you’ll get an extensive recipe book by Xavier Pellicer.
