Plant Hub & Academy

A dynamic plant-based Culinary Academy and cafe on Mare Street, Plant Hub has quickly turned into a place for inspiring chefs and foodies to congregate, eat and learn. The Plant Hub model is simple yet versatile: a cafe, a shared space, a bakery and a deli for hyper-local seasonal ingredients. And founders Lauren Lovatt, David Bez and Antonio Alderuccio will welcome you with a massive smile. Food from the kitchen - all vegan and gluten free - is creative, healthy and filling. With David and Antonio’s Italian background, expect to find some freshly prepared lasagna or focaccia transforming your nonna's recipes into modern plant-forward dishes. The star of the menu for us is the Protein Bowl, a stylish plate of chickpea omelette, black peas, fermented oat cheeze, kale and mustardy tahini sauce. The cookery school runs workshops and classes for home cooks and professionals wanting to learn how to put plants at the centre of their diet. Plant Hub also hosts a number of interesting events and supper clubs. There is lots of excitement surrounded the launch of this space and we can see why.
