The signs in the capital of Lower Saxony are ‘green’. This is due to Hanimsah Ates, who opened Hanover’s first vegan cooking school in November. Since then, her participants have been learning everything they need to know about plant-based nutrition via six different cooking courses and workshops – from Mexican to Asian to Oriental.
The workshops offered at Klagesmarkt 50 are not just for vegans, but for anyone who wants to learn more about meatless cuisine. A 4-hour course can be booked for 89 euros and includes not just the preparation of the food but also a shared meal of the culinary creations.
In an interview with the ‘Hannoversche Allgemeine’, Ates explained her motivation in taking the bold step of creating a vegan cooking school. In it, she says that she has always enjoyed eating and cooking. Her approach is to move away from industrially processed products and return to the food’s original form. Everything is purely plant-based and organic, says Ates.
And even though the former social scientist is now fully absorbed in her new role as head of the cooking school, she is not finished yet: “Everything is going well for now. There’s still plenty of room for improvement, though.”
