Discover how to create fine vegan pastry through the eyes of renowned vegan Pastry Chef Toni Rodriguez. 

Drawing from his experience training pastry chefs around the world and at his vegan pastry school, Toni Rodriguez Academy, Chef Rodriguez will teach you his philosophy on vegan pastry, along with a wide range of vegan pastry techniques that will revolutionize your vegan pastry offering. 

Learn how to create products that have a harmonious combination of textures and flavors, using quality ingredients that respect the planet.  

Chef Rodríguez will show that making quality desserts with vegan ingredients is not only a reality, but it is the evolution of pastry. This class will especially focus on how each ingredient works, why it is being used, and what reaction it has when combined with other ingredients. 

Join this class to challenge your concept of vegan pastry and learn the skills to create delicious plant-based desserts. In Chef Rodriguez’s words “It is not about replacing desserts or traditional dishes, but to create a new concept of pastry”. 

Objectives:

  • Learn how to create products that have a harmonious combination of textures and flavors, using quality ingredients that respect the planet.  
  • Discuss how each ingredient works, why it is being used, and what reaction it has when combined with other ingredients. 
  • Create desserts from scratch, understanding the chemistry and function of each element, and how to obtain the desired result in a dessert using plant-based ingredients.

After becoming vegan in 2004 for ethical reasons, Toni discovered her passion for gastronomy and began researching and developing recipes using only plant-based ingredients. He decided to train by working in vegetarian restaurants, but his concern for research and development of vegan pastry led him to create his own project in 2005, the Lujuria Vegana pastry workshop. 

Parallel to the work experiences between his bakery and vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Barcelona, ​​Madrid and Mallorca , he combined research and development in vegan pastry to obtain totally new products. He also wrote several 100% plant-based cookery and pastry books in collaboration with the famous food photographer Becky Lawton. 

The desire to share all his knowledge has led Toni to travel to different countries giving courses and advising different companies and restaurants. In 2018 he opened his own school  in Barcelona for training and R&D in vegan pastry:  Toni Rodríguez Academy.
