Evason Hua Hin in Pranburi, Thailand is delighted to announce the opening of a culinary academy in partnership with Matthew Kenney Cuisine.
This well-known American integrated lifestyle brand founded to meet the increasing interest in living foods and the art of raw food preparation is the ideal partner for Evason. Offering Asia’s first classically structured plant-based culinary academy, the new academic facility is surrounded by 20-acres of rich, manicured tropical gardens, lotus ponds and access to the best plant-based produce Thailand grows.
Built upon Founder Matthew Kenney’s culinary training in plant-based raw foods cuisine, the new culinary academy offers month-long courses, as well as weekday and weekend workshops which will be introduced later in the year. The curriculum is centered on the use of whole, organic, unprocessed plant-based foods to achieve healthy, aesthetically refined and flavorful cuisine. Core programming focuses on the “Fundamentals of Raw Cuisine” and offer students comprehensive training in the principles in the art of raw food, as well as cooked plant-based cuisine classes that further the modern, creative approach to preparing nutritious foods. All programs are structured to provide students heightened new techniques, enabling them to execute and innovate raw and cooked plant-based cuisine at the highest level. As part of an exclusive enrollment package, students are provided with accommodations at the resort.
The intimate class structure and personalized instruction at all Matthew Kenney Culinary Academies allow for hands-on experiences within a custom designed, commercial living foods kitchen. Every aspect of the culture, operation, and facility are developed to foster the company’s mission to advance cutting-edge living cuisine. As at other locations, the faculty and staff are hand-selected and trained in the latest culinary and educational techniques, priding themselves on continually advancing their own creativity and knowledge.
