March 17, Claire Gosse, "Are you sure that's vegan"? author.When I became vegan 12 years ago there weren’t many options available to vegans so I had to learn how to be creative in the kitchen. Through lots of trial and error I have figured out how to take many non vegan recipes and “veganize” them. Sometimes things worked and sometimes they didn’t, but each time I learned something new and applied it to the next recipe. As more and more vegan products came out on the market, I was able to recreate more and more of my favorite non vegan dishes. I have always loved baking and decided to try my hand at veganizing some of my favorite desserts. Vegan desserts and baked goods tend to get a bad rep because people assume they will be dry and taste bad. Well, I hate to say it, but the stereotype is often true. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had a dry vegan brownie or cupcake. The problem with many vegan desserts is that the people making them try to make them more than just vegan. They make gluten free, wheat free, sugar free and ultimately taste free desserts. I just want tasty vegan desserts that impress my friends and family, vegan or otherwise. I decided to write this book because I wanted to show people that vegan desserts don’t have to taste bad. They can be every bit as flavorful as their non vegan counter parts. Not only did I want to make recipes that tasted good, but I also wanted them to be simple and use ingredients that were easy to find. Most of the ingredients used in this book can be found at your local grocery store, however, there are a few specialty items that can be found online or in specialized stores. Claire Gosse is a vegan video blogger by day, you can find her at www.vegancooking.com and a cook book author by night. She lives in Orangeville, Ontario, Canada with her husband Brad, 4 dogs and 2 cats. She has been vegan for over 10 years and enjoys the challenge of making traditional recipes vegan.
