February 2014 – February 2015
If 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. 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 learn to use ingredients specific to vegan baking and gain the confidence to adapt many standard recipes to delicious vegan versions. Quality organic, seasonal ingredients will be emphasized, including whole grain flours, organic fair-traded sweeteners (both liquid and granulated), vegan gelatin (agar-agar), arrowroot and kuzu starches, non-dairy milks, sulfite-free fruit, chocolate, cocoa, pure extracts, leavening agents and much more. Novice and experienced bakers alike 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.
- Classes are limited to 14.
- A certificate of completion will be issued to those students attending the full 5 days.
- Fran’s book is included in the fee.
