The progressive herbivore

Olive Chefs have teamed upped with the creative crew from Plant Blazed to bring an exciting exploration into the world of plant-based ingredients using progressive techniques. The Progressive Herbivore will showcase balanced and flavourful dishes made from vibrant seasonal produce manipulated in creative ways, with techniques from dehydration to fermentation, to challenge both herbivores and omnivores alike to re-think the way plant-based dishes can be prepared.
