Online Vegan Cooking Classes from Around the World
It’s 2021 and while there is a light at the end of the tunnel of this pandemic (the vaccine!) we still need to be careful. The most responsible things we can do right now are to wear masks, social distance, and stay home whenever possible. I’ve compiled this list of online vegan cooking classes to help you fight pandemic boredom and fatigue. This is a great way to learn about different cultures and enjoy great food from the comfort of your home. Plus it’s fun for the whole family! Remember, all recipes are vegan or vegan-friendly!

If you scroll down to the ‘What to Bring’ section, you will see that if you use mushrooms instead of meat then many of the egg-free dishes can also be made vegan too.

Just be sure to double-check them since the recipes do change every month.
