Baking Is Different from Cooking
With her trademark sassy and humorous yet hard-hitting approach to veganism, Kim Barnouin, the nutritionist coauthor of the wildly popular Skinny Bitch books, has become the voice for the compassionate eater. Despite its huge popularity, veganism is far more to Kim Barnouin than just a trend--it's the only way she lives her life. And now she makes living a plant-based life more delicious with Skinny Bitch Bakery, a cookbook for everyone.
With cooking, you can improvise. Leave the rosemary out, or use scallions instead of garlic--the dish will turn out fine. But baking is different. If you use the wrong ingredients, the bread may refuse to rise and the cake may flop. Barnouin understands that simply making a swap of vegan ingredients is not enough. Instead, she has specially developed vegan recipes that will delight your loved ones while being kind to the planet.
Barnouin's fun, no-nonsense voice and vast expertise sparkle on every page, and she tantalizes the reader with eighty unique and fully tested recipes and full-color photographs of mouth-watering vegan baked goods. Smart, funny, and fearless, Barnouin teaches us all we need to know about the pleasures of vegan home baking so that we can delight our friends and family with baked goods that are actually good for them (although the treats are so delicious, you'd never know it ).
