Vegan Cookery Courses Phuket

Life On Plants is proud to host The Holistic Chef Academy’s Vegan Cookery Courses in Phuket, Thailand throughout 2023.


The Holistic Chef Academy offers unique courses on the art of wholefood plant-based cuisine. The curriculum is modern, innovative, creative, playful and emphasizes the importance of finding joy and love in sourcing, preparing, cooking, and serving healthy delicious food.

We could not have dreamt of a more idyllic place in the world to offer our Vegan Cookery Courses!

Holistic Chef Academy Phuket

Develop your culinary skills and knowledge while exploring a whole new exciting cuisine that’s becoming highly sought after around the world.

Our Vegan Cookery Courses are suitable for amateur cooks and professional chefs interested in developing their healthy plant-based cooking skills.

The curriculum will have a focus on Thai vegan cuisine, utilizing locally sourced ingredients. However, we aim to teach recipes and techniques that can be reenacted when you return home with generic and readily available whole food ingredients.
