Vegan Takeover with Chef with Dustin Harder: Vegan Desserts

Our favorite celebrity vegan chef, Dustin Harder, is back in our kitchen for a special hands-on class featuring recipes that are all plant-based. Dustin, the Culinary Specialist with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, will teach you how to make desserts from his cookbooks and the Physicians Committee catalog of recipes. These recipes are designed to create a healthier world with an emphasis on plant-based nutrition. With a little know how and an arsenal of dairy and egg substitutes, you’ll learn how to prepare easy-yet-decadent vegan sweet treats in this hands-on class. Each student will receive a raffle ticket during class with the opportunity to win one of Dustin’s cookbooks or an Eat More Plants apron!
Recipes featured in class today include:

  • Pad Thai Lime Cupcakes (Sweet and Savory Thai Flavored Cupcakes) with Salty Peanut Butter Frosting and Sweet Chili Drizzle-Will be made in advance and enjoyed upon arrival 
  • Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie with Vanilla Ice Cream
