Fran Costigan, the Queen of Vegan Desserts, will be joining us on Sunday, November 17th for a talk about chocolate, and a signing of her new book Vegan Chocolate: Unapologetically Luscious and Decadent Dairy-Free Desserts. Fran will be treating us to some of her insanely delicious chocolate treats as well.
The perfect gift for anyone with a sweet tooth, Vegan Chocolate is sure to become an instant classic. This is a beautiful hardcover book packed with mouthwatering photos, and is perfect for holiday gift giving.
Vegan Chocolate offers recipes for chocolate cakes, brownies, truffles, puddings, ice creams, and more that will appeal to every chocoholic—vegan or otherwise. And while committed vegans already know it can be difficult to find truly indulgent desserts that accommodate their diets, this breakthrough book will delight them and unite everyone and anyone who madly, deeply, and truly loves chocolate.
In Vegan Chocolate, you will find better-for-you interpretations of 120 favorite chocolate desserts: flavored chocolate truffles, Brooklyn Blackout Layer Cake, Éclairs, White and Dark Chocolate Cheesecake, Black-Bottom Cupcakes, Chocolate Pecan Pie, Mocha Crème Brûlée, Brownie Crumble Ice Cream, and even Moon Pies made with homemade vegan grahams. All of the recipes are plant-based, some are gluten-free and some are raw, but every single one is absolutely chocolate and made with quality, easily sourced ingredients, without dairy, eggs, and white sugar.
