5:00 - David Bailey - Vegan dim sum and small plates 

David will be demonstrating 'vegan dim sum and small plates'. We always think that one of the best ways to enjoy plant based meals is to have lots of small sharing plates and the tradition of dim sum lends itself perfectly to this way of eating. Drawing on David's many years of working as a Pan-Asian chef and our extensive travels throughout the region, the class will demonstrate some of our favourites.
