The Vegetarian Society Cookery School
The Vegetarian Society Cookery School is the home of veggie cooking.
Discover incredible new vegan dishes at our cookery demonstrations throughout the day at the Nantwich Food Festival. You’ll even have the chance to try some of the delicious creations!

The cookery school is part of the Vegetarian Society, a national charity. As part of our work we offer free courses to not-for-profit organisations, schools and community groups – so everyone has the chance to cook delicious veggie food. And every course sold helps make this work possible.
You can find out more about our cookery classes and the Vegetarian Society on our website, which has everything you need to know about eating veggie.
