Today I went to a vegetarian cooking class run by Sustainable Illawarra. It was taught by Adam of “I Feel Good“. Surprisingly I was only one of two vegetarians. It was such a great class and I came away with new knowledge and a new confidence. We made things for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.
The class was held in the Council building so we had a great view over Wollongong from the kitchen.
The highlights for me were the hummus – I’ve never before found a good at-home recipe. But this was fantastic. It was served with the most delicious salad – which I will definitely be making next week.
I helped make a Thai curry – which was nice but I could taste the coriander and I’m not a real fan of that particular herb.
The Pad Thai was yummy though.
And, of course, with Adam being a chef everything was presented beautifully.
My other favourite of the day was the Vegan Banana Cake (in fact I have one in the oven RIGHT NOW. Unfortunately the one in class burnt (was one VERY hot oven) so the top was removed. I skipped the icing because it had passionfruit in it (which I don’t like) but honestly this cake was SOOOOO yummy it didn’t need it anyway. Hope mine turns out just as good.
So a truly fantastic class. I think Adam is running another one in May – check out the Sustainable Illawarra calender. And I will DEFINITELY be doing some more of his classes.
