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.

    Hi there! I’m a teacher in San José, CA and I’m very interested in taking your Vegan Baking Bootcamp. The only time that I would be able to make the trip to the East Coast for your classes is in the summer. Will you be offering these classes this summer?

      Hi Alicia,
      In the past a summer vegan baking boot camp has been offered. It has not been set yet for this year. Keep up with my blog and newsletter for updates. I will post the date asap, should the summer “boot’ be confirmed. Thank you for writing. (the reason the winter boot is over President’s weekend is to give people the least amount of time to have to take off. I hope we will get to meet and work together!

    Hi there,

    Will you be offering the course again in 2015? I am living in Australia but would like to plan a US trip around some classes. Many thanks
