Discover the Best Vegetarian Cooking Classes in Los Angeles

Well-rounded vegetarian diets tend to be plentiful in vegetables and unsaturated fats while avoiding the consumption of meat, poultry, and seafood. People have been following vegetarian diets for centuries. Vegetarianism is highly recommended within major religions like Hinduism and Buddhism and was even popular among Greek philosophers like Pythagoras. Previously, vegetarianism was justified using moral arguments, but recent research into the benefits of a vegetarian diet has led some vegetarians to adopt the narrative that vegetarianism is a healthier alternative to a diet that includes the consumption of meat. 

The number of vegetarians is rising in both the US and around the world. Although some become vegetarians for moral or health reasons, others are vegetarians out of necessity. When meat production is costly or impossible due to climate and terrain, turning to a meatless diet is the only option for some to survive. In the US, the increase in popularity of vegetarianism, veganism, and plant-based meat alternatives has led to popular restaurants and fast-food chains offering vegetarian and/or vegan alternatives on their menus. 

In 2022, Los Angeles ranked as the third most-vegetarian and vegan-friendly city in the US, just behind Portland, Oregon, and Orlando, Florida. It’s unsurprising then that the city is known for its vegetarian restaurants. All the choices, however, can be overwhelming. If you’re interested in trying out vegetarian food, consider learning some vegetarian recipes that you can try out in your kitchen, or take a vegetarian cooking class where an expert instructor can guide you through recipes. 

Why You Should Learn Vegetarian Cooking in Los Angeles

When health scientists investigated the effects that a vegetarian diet has on the human body, they found several benefits. It’s been shown that if you follow a well-rounded vegetarian diet that adheres to recommended nutritional guidelines, you may be able to improve your heart health.

Meals that are heavy in meat typically contain more cholesterol and saturated fat than balanced vegetarian meals. Cholesterol and saturated fat both contribute to heart disease when consumed in large amounts over long periods. Conversely, vegetarian meals that incorporate vegetables and legumes can prevent heart disease. This is because many vegetables and legumes are high in soluble fiber, which removes cholesterol from the body. Additionally, vegetarians typically consume more unsaturated fats than meat-eaters, which help improve blood cholesterol levels. 

In-Person Vegetarian Cooking Classes in Los Angeles

In-person vegetarian cooking classes are offered in Los Angeles and other cities in California. These classes are led by professional chefs and expert instructors who’ll demonstrate how to cook a variety of vegetarian dishes. They will often also teach you basic knife skills and how to properly season your cooking. If you’re looking for an opportunity to socialize with others interested in vegetarian classes, an in-person class is the ideal location to do so. 

If you’re in or around San Francisco, CocuSocial Cooking Classes is hosting the class, Authentic Asian Dumplings. In this class, you’ll learn how to make Chinese dumplings from scratch and use pre-made dumpling wrappers. Both vegetarian and non-vegetarian fillings will be used in your dumplings, making this a great class for anyone interested in vegetarian cooking but not committed to a fully vegetarian diet. This class is designed to accommodate experienced and new cooks alike. 

In-person vegetarian cooking classes are frequently taught in the Los Angeles area. Check out CourseHorse regularly to see what new and returning vegetarian cooking classes are being offered. In the meantime, if no classes catch your interest, consider looking into virtual vegetarian cooking classes. 

Virtual Vegetarian Cooking Classes 

If you’d like to receive one-on-one feedback and socialize with others, an in-person class might be the best course type for you. Before signing up for a vegetarian cooking class, however, you should consider whether a virtual class would fit your needs better. Virtual classes are accessible from anywhere, so you don’t have to worry about whether an in-person class is being offered near you or if the commute fits into your schedule. Virtual vegetarian cooking classes can be taken from your kitchen and are led by an expert instructor, like an in-person class. You can check out online vegetarian cooking classes on CourseHorse.

Persian food is known for its use of fresh herbs, its fragrant aromas, and its use of both sweet and sour ingredients. If that sounds appealing to you, you can take Home Cooking New York’s Persian Dinner class. This class is welcoming to cooks of all skill levels. An instructor will guide you and other participants through cooking three Persian dishes, two of which are vegetarian, and one of which can be altered to become vegetarian. 

Sushi lovers should check out Food Craft’s virtual class, Vegetarian Sushi Rolling. Over the course of one-hour, your instructor will guide you through the process of making vegetarian sushi. You’ll be sent a vegetarian-friendly kit but if you enjoy seafood in your sushi, you can opt to purchase seafood fillings with the gift card that’s offered to purchase fresh ingredients. 

Private Group Vegetarian Cooking Classes in Los Angeles

Are you looking to book a private group vegetarian cooking class? These virtual classes are great activities for friends with an interest in cooking as well as organizations looking for team-building activities. CourseHorse can deliver these private group vegetarian cooking classes to you remotely through several online video platforms, like Zoom and Google Meets. 

You and your group can book a virtual Sushi Making Workshop where you’ll make both vegetarian and non-vegetarian sushi. A kit will be sent to each participant ahead of the class as well as a gift card so that you can purchase fresh ingredients like seafood and vegetable fillings. This is also a great class to learn knife skills, which are fundamental to cooking, and basic knowledge of sushi-grade fish. 

If your group wants to build on their drink-making skills while enjoying a vegetarian-friendly snack, CourseHorse offers a Guacamole and Margaritas workshop. Up to 100 people are welcome to take this class, making it suitable for small teams. By the end of the class, you’ll have learned how to make the perfect guacamole and margarita. 

CourseHorse offers many private group cooking classes that are vegetarian-friendly. If you’d like to take a class that teaches the fundamentals of vegetarian cooking or focuses on a specific region or culture’s vegetarian cuisine, reach out to CourseHorse using the contact form on their website. They’ll work with you to determine what type of class will best fit your group’s interests and sizes. 

If you’re on the fence about a class, CourseHorse can provide you with a 20-minute demo for the cost of $100. This will let you and your group get an idea of whether you’d enjoy the full class or not before booking. CourseHorse doesn’t charge booking fees and will also let you cancel a class for free up to two weeks before the scheduled date.
