Details: Product Description
Back in 2016, pro-baker Mike Sweetman had just become a vegan, but in his day job at his award-winning bakery he was still using a ton of eggs and butter every day. He wanted to do something about it, but struggled to find vegan recipes that were scrumptious enough to serve to his (mostly non-vegan) customers. He needed to find a way of baking without eggs and butter that was so delicious, none of his customers would notice (or care). 500 test bakes later, he’d finally created mouth-watering vegan versions of his best-selling recipes, and took the leap by converting his whole bakery counter to plant-based. The new recipes were so popular, soon he was baking more than ever. The first section of ‘Beating Eggs & Butter’ explains how he did it, and introduces the techniques and methods behind the 'Vegan Baking Wheel'. The second section covers everything you need to know to start vegan baking at home. Packed with 30 incredibly delicious recipes from simple-to-make hearty oat biscuits and banana breads, to indulgent fudgy brownies and gooey cookies, through to decadent layer cakes and desserts, this book's got you covered. So if you're new to vegan baking, (or just a curious baker thinking about plant-based recipes), this book will guide you through the confusing world of baking without eggs and butter, and help you get started. And if you're already a plant-based baker, this book will help raise your vegan baking game, reveal why some recipes you may have already tried work well (and others not so much), and boost your creativity by introducing new techniques.
About the Author
Plant-based, professional baker Mike Sweetman began his baking career with a Saturday job back in the 1980s. Almost 15 years later, after a decade in corporate life, it was time to get back to something he loved, baking. After setting up his organic artisan bakery outside Cardiff in 2007, Mike moved his bakery to the forward-thinking, alternative city of Norwich in 2015 where he pioneered new plant-based baking methods to thousands of loyal customers. A detail-orientated baker with a passion for the why as much as the how, he loves nothing more than discovering new ways to replace animal products in baking, and sharing his techniques with a new generation of plant-based and curious bakers.
