Matthew Kenney Launches Food Future Institute: Online Plant-Based Cooking School
Celebrity chef, author, and wellness entrepreneur Matthew Kenney launches Food Future Institute, an online education platform designed as the ultimate solution for anyone who either wants to learn how to prepare plant-based cuisine at home, or improve upon and expand their current culinary skills. Chef Kenney is known for creating the world’s first plant-based culinary schools fifteen years ago, and now he’s back at it, this time on your screen.
Food Future’s foundational course comprises nearly one hundred bite-sized classes, each containing a short video lesson featuring Chef Kenney as he leads you through a recipe in the comfort of his kitchen, and yours. The lessons are each accompanied by written materials, recipes, and images to guide you through, as well as ongoing support via chat and email. The student is encouraged to move through the course sequentially, as if on a journey from the essential to the elaborate plant-based food, cooking techniques, and recipes.
The course is designed for everyone, meaning you can consume it as quickly or slowly as you’d like, and is created out of pure joy. It is the living, breathing epitome of Chef Kenney’s passion for creating delicious food that is fun to cook, good for your body and in harmony with the planet. Whether you are a home cook or a professional chef, Food Future is the perfect addition to your culinary skillset. Throughout, there are multiple (optional) benchmarks and tests where you’ll have the opportunity to receive direct feedback from one of the FFI experts. Upon completion, the student receives a certification by the Food Future Institute, provided the student completes the course within one year.
Expect to learn about everything from knife skills and kitchen essentials to how to make a plant-based dinner in less than thirty minutes, create your own vegan cheeses, or wow your friends, family, or boss (if you are a professional chef) with a five-course tasting menu. Classes will include basics like knife skills, along with recipes, including Mushroom Escabeche, Smoothies + Superfood Power Truffles, Fermentation, and Butternut Squash Mac 'n' Cheese.
Registration for The Future Food Institute opens on Friday, May 8. To register for the course at an introductory rate of 350, click here.
