Hi there - I'm pretty sure the culinary program for you is the Natural Gourmet Institute (http://www.naturalgourmetschool.com/
), which is the only accredited vegetarian/vegan cooking school that I know of. I graduated from their Chef's Training program in 2003, and am definitely appreciative of the culinary education I received from them (attending school in the culinary mecca that is New York City was amazing as well).
When I attended, the program was 95% vegan. There was one week in which animal foods were focused on (really just fish, eggs, and poultry - we didn't focus on red meat or pork). There were four students in our class who decided to take that week off to avoid working with the animal foods. (I decided to stay...I wanted to broaden my experience with cooking foods, even if I choose not to eat them). The program covers lots of techniques, whole-foods nutrition, business training (if you want to go into biz on your own), lectures in ayurveda, Chinese medicine, healing with food, etc. Some days are spent entirely cooking, where other days might be split between lecture and cooking.
The school will also help you secure an internship at the end of the program, which is compulsory for completing the program. It's a great opportunity to work in a professional kitchen using the skills that you've just learned in school, and also a chance to network with other culinary professionals. There are plenty of vegetarian/vegan/natural restaurants in NYC and around the country that the Natural Gourmet has sent interns - my classmates went to work in NYC, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Portland, Washington DC.
The school has some well-known alumni...Eric Tucker, who founded the Millennium Restaurant in San Francisco (very well known gourmet vegan restaurant), for one. You might have seen the movie Supersize Me, about the fellow who decided to eat only McDonalds for a month to see what it would do to his health? Well his girlfriend (who's collecting some celebrity because of her connection to Morgan Spulock, the star of the film, and because she's a vegan chef) is also a graduate of the Natural Gourmet.
Feel free to email me if you want to talk more in depth about the program!
