Chef Lauren Lovatt kickstarts a new plant based Culinary Academy and Kitchen


Having always been passionate about making food, Lauren pursued her passion to become a plant-based chef. This desire to share nutritious and mesmerising plant food led her to worked as head chef of the aspirational vegan restaurant named Asparagasm for two years in the Cotswolds. From its creation, Lauren went on to train with Matthew Kenney Culinary in California, USA and then went on to be a Lead Instructor at the PlantLab School in Barcelona.



The Plant Hub Is a dynamic new plant based Culinary Academy and Kitchen coming soon to East London! Our Aim is to Inspire a passion for plants through building a community where we can all learn from the most inspiring chefs and foodies to empower the nation with the knowledge to make and enjoy more plant-based food.

The Academy

This campaign is specifically for our Academy. At the Plant Academy our courses focus on the most important topics in the realms of plants taught by Lauren and David alongside classically trained chefs, professional nutritionists and influential plant-based leaders. We know from our own studies over some years that it’s not just about the learning but also very much about the people you meet and the inspiration derived from working with them. Spending time with others who are equally curious and eager to learn can be life changing.

This is an opportunity to create an inclusive community that inspires health, creativity and teaches vital life skills in a dynamic plant powered way. With your help, through pledges, The Academy can buy the equipment needed to equip a professional kitchen, from which we will deliver the classes. From specialised equipment, fridges and freezers to work stations, chopping boards and rolling pins, your pledge will enable us to create an inspiring and well-equipped space to teach these dynamic classes.
