Fran Costigan - Dairy Alternatives, Plant Milk and Beyond

About this Event

Today’s profusion of non-dairy options is astonishing, and maybe just a tad confusing. Join Chef Fran, our director of Vegan Pastry at Rouxbe, to explore the vast array of plant milks, creams, yogurt, butters. It’s not just soy and rice milk (or the dreaded hydrogenated margarine) anymore.

For vegan or lactose intolerant folks, these ingredients are a boon. Plant-based dairy products are kinder to the environment and animals, and cholesterol-free too. Chef Fran will walk you through the plethora of plant milks, butters, yogurts, creams, focusing on types, ingredients and when to use one over another.

DIY plant milks and a simple recipe for making vegan butter are on the table.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to try something new, and ask the amazing chef Fran your questions about plant-based dairy alternatives at our Live Event.
