Not everyone can visit or afford a vegan in-person class. So most people will learn online. Good in-person classes are Our Lizzy (includes bed-and-breakfast accommodation in the Malvern Hills, so you can walk off your dinner after making it!) and Morso Vegan (Bath) which offers courses for world cuisine and the prestigious Demuths Diploma, which aligns to catering college qualifications, taught over 6 weeks). Here are good online classes.

Before cooking, read up on food safety for people & pets (many human foods are unsafe around animal friends).
