Intensive Course
Vegan Pastry

In this course we synthesize the result of everything we have researched, discovered and developed in Vegan Pastry during the last 15 years, simplified and embodied in the theoretical dossier that will be given to you on the first day of the course.

In this course you will learn which vegetable ingredients can be used to replace those of animal origin and how to use them correctly and in the right proportion, depending on the preparation.

You will learn different techniques to prepare quality vegan desserts, without using eggs, dairy products, gelatin or honey. We will explain how to reduce saturated fats and prepare less sweet preparations with more intense flavors, depending on the type of dessert to be made. In addition, 80% of the elaborations that we will prepare in this course do not contain gluten.

We have been studying ingredient technology for more than a decade and in this course we teach it so that in a few days you will learn to understand a recipe and know if it can work or not just by reading it.

To substitute ingredients in a dessert it is essential to understand what properties those ingredients have and what function they serve.

Thanks to the knowledge of the basics you will be able to understand what function we need in each elaboration, look for what combination of ingredients (and in what quantity) fulfill that same function and thus be able to design your own desserts.

And this cannot be done "by eye". Pastry is very technical: in order for the ingredients to be transformed and the recipe to be perfect, there have to be physical and chemical principles. There has to be a precise transformation. That's the complicated part. Luckily for you, we have already done this trial-and-error work.

"But how is a vegan dessert going to be tastier than a traditional one?"

This question is in the heads of many who have not yet realized something curious: Since traditional pastries have always been made with dairy and eggs, we have never been able to experience the taste of these recipes when these ingredients are not present. We have never known anything else.
The moment we tasted a well-made vegan alternative, we realized to what extent the flavor left behind by milk, egg and butter was covering up the flavor of the other main ingredients.

Have you ever thought that if someone had not discovered the role of eggs in baking and standardized their use, would we have a very different vision of baking?

The aim of this course is exactly this: to offer you another vision of pastry, more ethical, tastier and more respectful of the environment and how to make it correctly.
