1.00 - Rachel Demuth & Jo Ingleby - Turkish Delights     

Demuth's Cookery School is one of only two specialist vegetarian cookery schools in the UK. In 2015, they are increasing our range of vegan classes and now include Vegan Foundation and Vegan Diploma long courses, as well as their popular Gourmet Vegan range of classes. The school is run by Rachel Demuth, one of the country’s leading vegetarian cooks and teachers, who ran the iconic Demuths Restaurant in Bath for over 28 years.

Demuth's are delighted to have been asked back to VegfestUK and this year they will bring you a couple of dishes from Turkey. Join us on the day to find out which Turkish delights they have chosen! Both dishes demonstrated will be vegan.

The Demuths tutors running our demos this year are Rachel and Jo Ingelby. Jo is a Bristol-based chef and artist and, as well as teaching regularly at the cookery school, is an expert in getting the under 5’s cooking and loving vegetables!
