Talenti DAIRY-FREE SORBETTO

Talenti Sorbetto Sherbet contrary to popular thought usually contains milk. So does sorbetto or sorbet.

YELLOW CAKE for STEAM INDIA

This is Chef Davies-Tight’s Yellow Cake developed at the request of STEAM INDIA.

We’re cooking without animals, which means everything changes. It’s never a matter of taking the meat, eggs, dairy out of a dish to make a delicious animal-free recipe.

Instead of the traditional whipped cream, we top with Jif Whip chocolate peanut butter whipped further with a high fat coconut milk! Garnished with fresh basil! Serves 4-6

MINI ALMOND DONUTS

MINI MOONCAKE

A friend gave me these a few days ago. Even though they’re not as sweet as American desserts, they really are quite good – actually so good that Steve and I ate them all at once.
