Vegan / Dairy Free Chocolates and Confections

Chef Andrés Lara is always reinventing himself through his forward approach to pastry, food science and his endless pursuit to push the boundaries of flavor to another level.
This class is perfect for those wanting to offer Vegan and dairy free confections for vegan, health conscious customers with allergies who are looking to satisfy their cravings and are tired of having uninspired, flavorless products.
The goal of this class is that you walk away knowing how to approach your recipes and re-formulate them replacing dairy, regular sugars and eggs with the right ingredients to still produce decadent chocolates and confections.
