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.
