Asian Cooking Workshop chez 5 Lorette



All this time you thought your dog was your best friend…

But, it turns out, it’s your blender.

Just kidding.

I mean, I just don’t have a puppy, so… it’s just me ‘n’ my blender. ūüôĀ

No, waitwait, in all seriousness, Chloe is my best friend, obvs, but there are practically a million things that you can do with a blender, making it a truly trusty and faithful companion. Hence, Chloe and I decided it was high time to organize a cooking workshop totally focused on blender recipes. And aside from the epic fail of my top knot (no jokes please,) our Asian Cooking Workshop Tuesday was a phenomenal success!

See, these days Paris is bubbling with new ideals, practices, and philosophies with many of them leaning toward organic/veggie/sustainable, and for this we can only say, “Hurray!” (Read more about the Paris¬†veggie revolution.) Meaning… Parisians¬†of all ages and backgrounds gathered enthusiastically for our plant-based, gluten-free, and blender-made¬†bonanza! Yay!

Our participants had many different reasons for coming… there were:

  • Curious ones¬†tout simplement
  • Those wanting to eat more veggies, and/or¬†healthify their own home cooking
  • Readers of our blog (Thank you, friends!)
  • Fans of 5 Lorette
  • Lovers of Asian food
  • Blender owners
  • And of course, all-of-the-above-rs.

(There was a poll. ūüėČ )

We are delighted to be¬†collaborating with¬†5 Lorette for our workshops, as their food, philosophy, and style align amazingly well with ours. The restaurant is warm, inviting, and¬†totally magnifique. A place where you feel comfortable and want to ‘plant’ yourself for hours!

We feel it’s truly important to create¬†community¬†around healthy food.¬†Through our workshops we are able to really share and exchange, and we are¬†so grateful for all the wonderful people we meet almost every day thanks to Veggie Magnifique, and to this growing health-conscious community in Paris.

Another big priority of ours is to, of course, demystify the preparation of plant-based food.¬†In short: Eating a balanced plant-based diet is¬†easier than you think. (‘Spesh if you have a blender!) We make sure our recipes are¬†easy peasy to recreate at home and that our¬†workshops are very¬†interactive and¬†hands on.¬†We want people to touch, feel, and even play with their food. Because that’s what it’s all about. It’s not that serious. I mean… it is and it isn’t. What you put in your mouth is all kinds of serious, but… let’s treat it with lightness and play.
