Matthew Kenney Culinary has announced the expansion of its renowned educational platform via a series of international pop-up classes and a new European campus throughout the coming year. Starting in early 2017, Matthew Kenney Culinary will launch across the globe in some of the most vibrant, dynamic, and sought-after culinary destinations the world has to offer, beginning in New York City.

At the forefront of the quickly growing raw and plant-based movement, Matthew Kenney Culinary has long had a presence on US soil, with successful and permanent academy locations in Venice, California; Miami, Florida; and Belfast, Maine. Historically, the international community has flocked to the States to enroll in Matthew Kenney Culinary classes. But seeing the influx of global students, and as vegan cuisine continues to increase in popularity, the program will now travel throughout the world to meet student demand.

Offering intimate and personalized classes, Matthew Kenney Culinary allows students to receive a hands-on learning experience and develop their talents through innovative techniques and creativity. The critically acclaimed academy employs a classic culinary school structure with cutting edge equipment, real world restaurant experience, and of course, access to the Matthew Kenney Culinary alumni network – one that has stretched far and wide across the United States and the world since its inception in Belfast in 2009. To date, Matthew Kenney Culinary has graduated over 3,000 students.

The multi-city pop-ups will highlight the dynamic, culinary culture each city has to offer by using seasonal and locally sourced ingredients.

Arguably seen as the face of vegan cuisine in the United States today, Matthew Kenney has continually pushed the boundaries of what the culinary niche can be. From a coveted and rare ‘4-Star’ review for his restaurant Plant Food + Wine from The Miami Herald, to his academy’s status as the preeminent plant-based cooking program in the country, and multiple expansion and media projects in between, Kenney has built a lifestyle brand that is setting the standard for plant-based chefs and education today.
