Plant-Based Cooking With Pizzazz:
3 Nights of Exploration with Flavor & Framework

Take this 3-night workshop and learn how to create delicious plant-based meals and incorporate more vegetarian cooking into your diet! Taught by food and wellness guru Éva Raposa, creator of the internationally licensed "Uncooking 101" course.

Night 1: Introduction to Plant-Based Cooking

  • The basics of plant-based cooking
  • What foods are plant-based, and which tricky ones seem like they would be… but aren't on the list?
  • Your best on-island resources for plant-based food options (more surprises here, perhaps?)
  • A quick-dive into the different ways of doing plant-based
  • Make 3 delicious appetizers to enjoy together. Celebrate the simplicity of these well-loved party favorites!

Night 2: Introduction to The Hex Method
The Hex Method is Éva's proprietary 6-step methodology for putting magic and flavor into plant-based foods. Tonight, we're introduced to the framework that helps plant-based chefs to feel at ease. The goal is for you to walk into any kitchen, garden, or supermarket and see how the pieces of a delicious dish can fit together.

  • What are the most important components of your meal?
  • How to make the flavors POP
  • How to ramp up the intensity without requiring meat or junky additives
  • Plating mini-tutorial
  • Zip up a super-fresh dressing that would make anyone want to eat salad
  • Use the dressing as a template so that you can repeat it with whatever fresh foods you have on hand in the future.

Night 3: Soups, Sauces, & Dips
Dive deeper into The Hex Method framework while learning how you can repurpose these food bases to go far beyond dipping veggies.

  • Make a creamy, indulgent, warming butternut squash soup that ties together the concepts covered in Nights 1 and 2.
  • See how truly simple it is to transform modern recipes into plant-based powerhouses
  • Enjoy nut- and seed-based pates that are super filling and versatile
  • Cover all questions about plant-based cooking, flavor combining, and creating your own recipes

Éva Raposa went raw vegan and plant-based overnight in February 2007 after a Google search to find a natural cure for ulcers and gas. After nothing else seemed to help, she felt it was worth a try. Days later, her biggest health issues were resolved, and her energy seemed to have multiplied. This inspired her to create her signature raw food class "Uncooking 101", which has since been licensed to hundreds of teachers worldwide. These days, Éva continues to teach via the Green Chef Academy and is the founding director for MVY Coop, an organic food cooperative on island.
