Editorial Reviews

"Fran's infectious passion for chocolate radiates from these voluptuous yet amazingly approachable recipes. From breakfast smoothies to show-stopping desserts and even nightcaps, Fran finds a way to sneak a little chocolate bliss into every corner of your day. Warning: these hedonistic recipes aren't for the faint of heart! (I admit it. I actually licked page 92.)"
–Dynise Balcavage, author of Pies and Tarts with Heart and The Urban Vegan

“I am an ardent proponent of clean, unadulterated flavors. Years ago I've eliminated milk and cream from my chocolate cakes to achieve a truer flavor statement. From a culinary standpoint, Fran Costigan demonstrates the same desire for purity. With scientifically-based explanations and the refined palate of a trained pastry-chef, she teaches both amateur and professional cooks how to make amazing desserts without any animal sources. Not only are the recipes safe for the vegan lifestyle and allergy sufferers, they stand on their own as ambrosial desserts.”
—Ron Ben-Israel, owner of Ron Ben-Israel Cakes and host of Sweet Genius

“Delve in, and Vegan Chocolate becomes a kind of cake itself, prepared to perfection and dense with flavor. Packed with vibrant photos by Kate Lewis, the book itself appeals sensually in addition to its valuable info. Costigan has finally gotten the top-of-the-line packaging her work has always deserved…. This new, sumptuous book is an appropriate summation of more than a decade of sweet-tooth expertise.”
—Philadelphia Daily News

“When those of us of the grains, beans, and veggies persuasion want to indulge in a sweet treat, it has to be something spectacular—and preferably chocolate! There's no better guide to the world of delectable chocolate desserts than Fran Costigan; that they happen to be egg- and dairy-free is icing on the vegan cake. A feast for all the senses, Vegan Chocolate sets the bar at a new level for home cooks as well as chefs.”
—Nava Atlas, author of Wild About Greens and Vegan Holiday Kitchen

“Fran Costigan's stunning new book is a game changer. Vegan Chocolate is a delicious book, filled with clearly written user-friendly recipes, inventive techniques, and practical information. Nothing is missing from these sumptuous chocolate desserts except the dairy, eggs, refined sugar, and cholesterol. With an Opera Cake and a Bûche de Noel, truffles, ice creams, simple cookies, and more, transitioning over to vegan eating has never been more tempting. This book has earned a permanent place in my kitchen!”

These are recipes based on skill and passion for good chocolate desserts, the best combination possible.”
