Today, host Laura Theodore, the Jazzy Vegetarian, chats with Fran Costigan, Queen of the Vegan Desserts, to chat about tasty and healthy dessert recipes to prepare for your family and friends this holiday season. I’ll also share my famous Chocolate Pots de Crème recipe ...jazzylicious! Fran Costigan, is an internationally recognized culinary instructor, author, consultant, recipe developer and the pioneering vegan pastry chef who marries healthy eating with sumptuous tastes. Fran’s book, More Great Good Dairy-Free Desserts Naturally, is designed as a complete course in vegan baking. Fran’s recipes feature organic whole grains, fair trade natural sweeteners and chocolates, and clean seasonal ingredients. In Fran’s recipes, ‘nothing is missing except the dairy, eggs, white sugar and excess fat.’ She is the authority on all things related to vegan baking and desserts. A graduate of the New York Restaurant School, the Natural Gourmet Institute, and Nick Malgerie’s Professional Pastry Intensive, Fran and her decadent vegan dessert recipes have been featured on Discovery Health’s Get Fresh with Sara Snow, Better TV, and ABC’s Nightline. Her work has been profiled in numerous print and online publications such as The New Yorker, VegNews, Veg Family, Vegetarian Journal, Vegetarian Voice, Café Sweets Japan, and Organic Spa Magazine.
