Synopses & Reviews
Eat Like a Diva
From the owner of the much-buzzed-about Vegan Divas Bakery on New York City's Upper East Side comes this beautiful, elegant, and undeniably delicious cookbook full of cruelty-free fare that anyone can make at home.
Previously a manager and owner of the Payard restaurant and pastry shops in Rio de Janeiro, where she began her confectionary career and honed her craft, Fernanda Capobianco is a fifteen-year vegan who has translated her love of chocolate and sweets into both simple and refined desserts that are healthy and 100 percent free of animal products. In The Vegan Divas Cookbook, Fernanda shares her unique take on vegan eating, with more than seventy-five recipes for sweet and savory dishes accompanied by mouth-watering photographs. She'll guide you through the basics as well as the finer points of plant-based cooking and baking, offering tips for stocking a plant-based pantry and suggesting easy swaps to replace animal-based oils and fats to create healthier, and better-tasting, dishes. Always conscious of visual appeal, Fernanda also provides entertaining and decorating tips for turning out perfect plates and beautiful baked goods—a hallmark of the Vegan Divas brand.
You'll discover the secrets to Fernanda's coveted low-cal desserts, including remakes of familiar classics like Chocolate Chip Cookies, Carrot Cake, and Chocolate Mousse; as well as show-stopping treats like Chocolate-Coffee Mini-Bundt Cakes, Lime-Raspberry Cheesecake Pie, and Chocolate Liégeois with Tofu-Tahini Ice Cream. But desserts aren't the only treats in store. Go guilt-free with savory lunches like Spiced Red Lentil and Coconut Milk Soup, Roasted Kabocha Pumpkin with Peanut Sauce, and Blue Potato Kale Salad.
Whether you've been following a plant-based diet for years or you're just looking to incorporate more whole foods into your meals, Fernanda's recipes are so tasty you'll never miss the butter, eggs, or refined sugars and flour. These light, fresh, delicious dishes are sure to convert anyone to a Vegan Diva.
