A college-level online course on vegetarianism is now available, according to Vegetarian Resource Group. It is taught by Chef Nancy Berkoff, RD. Originally designed as an advanced nutrition class for culinary students, the course has been expanded to include topics of interest for everyone interested in food, health, small business and vegetarianism. Consumers can learn more about vegetarian cooking; institutional food service staff and managers can expand their knowledge about new products and cooking styles and restaurateurs will certainly be better able to please their vegan diners. Topics will include types of vegetarians, recipe and menu design, careers in vegetarian food services, ethnic cuisines, ingredient selection, vegetarian nutrition and health trends and vegetarian business topics. College credit is optional and the course is open to the public. The cost for the course is $100. There is an additional cost to receive college credit.
