Why I decided to become an author…
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.
