If excellent vegan chocolate dessert sounds counterintuitive, you haven’t seen Fran Costigan’s stunning new cookbook, Vegan Chocolate: Unapologetically Luscious and Decadent Dairy-Free Desserts. An internationally renowned cooking teacher and cookbook author, Fran was a pastry chef in both traditional and vegan restaurant kitchens before moving into teaching over 20 years ago. For this class, Fran has selected a superb sampling of recipes from Vegan Chocolate to demonstrate. All are dairy, egg, white sugar and cholesterol-free, and for this class, most are gluten free, or can be made gluten free. These recipes feature premium quality chocolate and easy to find ingredients. Most importantly, every recipe is unconditionally guaranteed to satisfy even the most ardent chocoholics.
• Chocolate Pudding Filled and Frosted Blackout Layer Cake
• Ganache Glazed Gluten-Free Brownie Bites
• Chocolate Orange Sesame Truffles
• White Russians with House Made Chocolate Vodka
Copies of Fran Costigan’s Vegan Chocolate: Unapologetically Luscious and Decadent Dairy-Free Desserts will be available for purchase, and Fran will be happy to personalize yours.
I’ll be reading from Vegan Chocolate and passing tastes of chocolate recipes in the book. Meet and mingle, have a bite, buy a book for a holiday gift and maybe some new vegan shoes too! Please come to say hi and bring your friends!
Menu will include: Truffles, Chocolate Crostini, Tootsie-Roll-Ish logs, Gluten Free Chocolate Cakes, and who knows what else! :D
