Made In Hackney run a programme of life enriching masterclasses led by our team of nutritionists, chefs, foragers, herbalists and food lovers. Our classes reflect Made In Hackney's philosophy of LOCAL, SEASONAL, ORGANIC and 100% PLANT-BASED, delicious food. Our hands-on sessions give you the confidence and knowledge, in a relaxed environment, to incorporate these skills into your life or food business.

Our masterclasses suit all experience levels, and you can choose from four-hour sessions to four-week courses*. The classes are held in Stoke Newington, London.

Please get in touch to be notified of future class dates, or to suggest classes not already listed that you’d like us to create.

All masterclass proceeds fund our programme of FREE courses to marginalised and low-income community groups. So, by attending a class you get a great day of learning AND you’re providing essential funds for us to continue our work with vulnerable community groups.

The programme changes seasonally but previous masterclasses have included: Going Vegan; Nut Cheese; Fermentation; Gourmet Raw Food; Wild Food Cookery; Plant Powered Fitness; Artisan Bread Making; Homemade Cosmetics; Vegan Meats; Gluten-free Baking; Vegan Korean; and many more.

The price of a masterclass includes: All ingredients, Hands-on practical sessions, Tastings in class, Take-home samples (depending on theme), A delicious, organic, locally sourced meal (allergies and dietary requirements catered for with notice) and Printed recipes.
