The Vegan Pastry Bible

Written by the founder of a vegan pastry academy in Barcelona, Wildslice, The Vegan Pastry Bible offers more than 100 recipes supported by 500 step-by-step photos for creating a full range of vegan baked goods.
Chef Toni Rodriguez created one of the first vegan patisseries in Europe, developing his own recipes and experimenting with different products to replace animal-based ingredients. The first set of recipes he presents here are for creating in-house vegan alternatives, from milks and whipping cream, to cooking cream, decorative buttercream, pastry cream, praline, and caramel.
These components are used in preparing a wide range of desserts:
- Sponge cakes
- Breakfast and snack items
- Cookies and shortbreads
- Macarons and petit-fours
- Chocolate desserts
- Creams, flans and mousses
Among them are an olive-oil based puff pastry dough, crostata, pecan pie, meringue that will produce ethereal macarons, flourless chocolate cakes, and cannoli.
Written for bakers in professional kitchens, the book is accessible to what we would call a motivated, serious home baker who is willing to develop a pantry that contains the likes of xanthan gum and lecithin powder.
Hardcover. Color photographs throughout.
