Why I decided to become an author…

I won several gold and silver medals in international competitions ( plated desserts, showpieces, buffets, petits fours). Among them the “Salon Culinaire de la Gastronomie au Liban” with an international jury.

A few years ago, as a Pastry Chef, I was struggling to offer our vegan guests a decent choice of desserts. When a choice was offered (and it usually consisted in a fruit salad or sorbet!) it still suffered from a pour presentation and disappointing taste.

This is what enticed me to create my own range of vegan desserts, focused on taste and presentation.

My challenge, as a Pastry Chef, is to convince people that Vegan desserts are easy to make, taste yummy and look fantastic!

The need for a cookbook became obvious. This, in turn, motivated me to create my first cookbook “Vegans deserve better than a fruit salad”, Olympia Publishers.

My book contains 60+ yummy vegan dessert recipes

Vegans Deserve Better Than a Fruit Salad is an informative, humorous, idea-inspiring cookery book like no other.

Inspired by classical and iconic desserts from the UK and abroad, it covers the main fields of pastry – buffets, plated desserts, petits fours, birthdays… Classical English desserts will have a place of honour. A modern twist will bring them to the front of stage, from an Eton Mess to a sticky toffee pudding.

A special attention is brought to the basics of vegan pastry too often neglected in the existing vegan cooking literature: sponges, creams, pastries, meringues, chocolate…

It also contains a quite exhaustive review of the main vegan substitutes in pastry (eggs and dairy replacers, thickeners, sweeteners…)

Definitely one of the few cookbooks treating of Vegan Pastry with a professional approach, accessible to anyone.
