    “After completing Veet's intensive foundation vegan cooking course, apparently unique in Australia, I have come away knowing how to thriftily convert any recipe into an excellent vegan version. Along with a keen Sydney first time learner and a very competent Queensland repeat learner, I observed and helped with preparation of up to 40 vegan food items and dishes in a 3 day blitz, all of it offering cleaner, better nutrition, and, no doubt, taste, than non vegan equivalents.I found Veet's course to be totally professional but with the passion of a mission rather than a strategic industry. I understand Veet was formerly a popular vegetarian caterer for high end Byron shire retreats. Now a vegan and qualified nutritionist, Veet advances vegan nutrition awareness in Northern NSW and well beyond. I can so recommend her great value 3 day kitchen experience offered with awesome stamina and enthusiasm from her well appointed domestic base in the Tweed.”

    “I recently attended the 3 Day Vegan Cooking Course and couldn’t have received more value for money! Veet is passionate, professional and packs a punch when it comes to her knowledge and skill in the kitchen.I especially liked how we made food for everyday, along with sweet treats and for special occasions. I also enjoyed both working as a group and in pairs. This along with Veet’s generous and enthusiastic teaching style made the 3 days fly. Throughout the course, she was always happy to answer our questions and help us stay grounded and calm in the process.Sitting down daily to eat our creations at a beautifully set table with a magnificent mountain view was icing on the (vegan) cake!.”
