Plant-based Food: A Force for Change

Blending tradition and state-of-the-art cuisine, we believe in food that is healthy, beautiful, delicious and conscious of the planet.




Plant-based and conscious, we are committed to sharing the fundamentals of healthy cooking, based on organic and cruelty-free ingredients so you can create your own balanced and sustainable recipes from scratch.


Do you want to improve your culinary skills? Or maybe grow at the professional level? Our courses are adapted to all levels and you'll learn the skills needed to achieve your goals, both personal and professional, from anywhere in the world.

Sectio Aurea

Nature expresses herself in numbers, spirals, distributions among plants, leaves, seeds and animals. These patterns are also present in Music, Architecture, Painting and other forms of Art, where the Golden Ratio is often found. The idea behind finding the perfect harmony expressed in numbers, inspired us to use AUREA (latin for gold) as the school's name, as it calls for balance, the appropriate ratio of ingredients, processes, and patterns to achieve optimal results, as close to Nature as possible.

Why a plant-based cooking school?

There are two main reasons why I decided to commit to this project, and I’d love to share them withyou:

First, I’ve been very fortunate to find incredible teachers all my life. They ignited curiosity in me and invited me to explore different approaches and solutions by myself, even if that meant breaking some rules in the process. That’s something I’ve wanted Aurea to represent from the very beginning: we don’t pretend to be a school that teaches you how to recreate recipes, rather, we aspire to help you explore and expand your inner creativity.

The second reason is that I believe plant-based food has the potential to effect major change in the world. Sharing our knowledge as chefs, empowering individuals and organizations to eat more naturally and avoid the processed and artificial foods of our currently unsustainable food chain: this is not just our passion – it is our responsibility.
