Over the past few months we've been working on this project and we've put our heart and soul in experimenting, optimizing and testing new recipes to define our concept."IT'S MY KIND OF VEGAN STORY" is finally available!
Marit and me, are two friends that used to work together. And decided to team up to finalize this project. Marit is mostly responsible for the concept development and the graphic design and I am the mastermind behind all the recipes.
Our book is an introduction to an Italian plant-based vision on food. It has classical recipes that were already vegan. But also our favorite Italian recipes with a plant based twist.
You can find in the "basic preparation" the recipes I use to make: some italian specials like taralli and friselle, fresh pasta, tempeh bolognese sauce, different kind of cheese like almond ricotta and a semiaged potato & peanuts cheese, custard cream... With these basics you can create amazing appetizer, primi e secondi piatti, piatti unici, contorni e desserts!
She taught me how to cook the perfect risotto, exceptional lasagna, regional dishes from northern Italy ... And now I want to share all her teachings with you!
My hard "job" has been to replace animal products, faithfully reproducing the appearance, texture and flavor of the dishes!
We have the ambition to share a story, to inspire others to start their own kind of vegan story. We hope that these simple recipes, ideas, and suggestions can help everyone to make, at least once in a while, a different choice: to live a healthier, more sustainable, and more ethical life.
