Hi there! I'm Samyukta Kartik, your instructor and mentor for this course. Having built valuable skills and knowledge in the world of plant-based cuisine over the years, I'm thrilled to be able to share it with you all!
This course has been designed to take you to an intermediate level. A beginner in this context classifies as somebody who knows at least some basics of regular day-to-day cooking. If you have never used a knife or basic kitchen appliances in your life, you’re likely to find this course challenging.
The pre-recorded video lessons are very detailed, and will guide you through each recipe step by step. As a beginner, there is so much to learn and you won’t believe how quickly you will become confident with more advanced recipes!
There are no prerequisites, however it is important that you are eager to learn, that you’re self-motivated, and genuinely want to take time out to cook for yourself and your loved ones. You will greatly benefit from this course if you take it seriously and practice! That’s only up to you 🙂
Your course begins as soon as you enroll. This is an entirely self-paced course, which means there are no specific dates for attendance. It’s flexible so that it suits your convenience and you can learn at any time.
Don’t worry about this. All ingredients are commonly available. Easy substitutions and alternate recipes, if needed, are provided in a separate list upon enrolling. In fact there isn’t a very large list of ingredients required for this course; I’ve also ensured they are easily available in most supermarkets and the ones that are not, are easily available on Amazon. Links will be provided.
A thorough ingredient and equipment list and a substitution list will also be provided as soon as you enroll.
Do keep in mind that many of the recipes are nut-based ( they are very small batch recipes so that they are affordable) so if you’d like to do some advance planning, identify a wholesaler near you where you can get cashews at the cheapest price available.
As far as equipment is concerned, it is only very important that you have a mixie/blender/food processor (it’s called different things in different places) as this course involves a lot of blending. Measuring cups and spoons are also important to have. The others are all basic kitchen utensils that you’ll most likely already have, or can easily be purchased.
Once you enroll, you will get the link to a private facebook student group, and optionally a Whatsapp group too, which I (your instructor) will also be a part of. This would be a great way for students to help one another out and exchange ideas, while building a sense of community! I would step in and answer questions in case anyone has doubts or queries. I will also share interesting articles/videos/recipes from time to time!
Alternatively, I can also be contacted via Instagram DM or Email.
50% of the course fees becomes non-refundable upon enrollment. In case of any extreme or unexpected circumstances a partial refund will be considered on a case-by-case basis. However, beyond 7 days, it becomes fully non-refundable.
