See.. Eat.. Hear.. FEEL VEGAN.  Two days of vegan exploration await you. Nourish your taste buds on scrumptious plant-based food from New York’s famed vegan restaurants – the best in the world! Get inspired by world-renowned speakers, champion athletes, and top chefs. Provoke new thoughts with award-winning films and their directors.

1912481_507085732741835_989010418_nIf you’re on a mission to make world-class vegan desserts, sign on for some “basic training” in the field. Learn the tactics involved in baking without dairy, eggs, and refined sugar, or odd ingredients. The entire operation was developed by Fran Costigan, vegan pastry chef-instructor and author of Great Good Desserts Naturally, More Great Good Desserts Naturally, and the new Vegan Chocolate: Unapologetically Luscious and Decadent Dairy-Free Desserts, the books considered the “bibles” of vegan pastry arts. You’ll  gain the confidence to adapt many standard recipes to delicious vegan versions, as you learn about foundational pastry technique and ingredients specific to vegan baking. Quality organic, seasonal ingredients will be emphasized, including whole grain flours, organic fair-traded sweeteners (both liquid and granulated), vegan gelatin (agar-agar), root starches, non-dairy milks, sulfite-free dried fruits, chocolate, cocoa, pure extracts, leavening agents and much more. Novice and experienced bakers and everyone in between will benefit from the expert training offered in this unique intensive. Plating of desserts will be practiced daily and a dessert buffet party will be our finale.
