Do you know who Chef Chloe is? If not, I think you should.
I first saw this bubbly smiley vegan chef on the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars. She was the only vegan chef/baker and the other bakers (and judges) kept underestimating her. But Chef Chloe kept baking amazing creative creations, winning over the judges (even the French pastry chef!), and proving to the world that vegan baking has a high place in the food world. When she won, I literally screamed out with excitement.
Well, vegan cupcakes must have made quite the impression because tonight, The Food Network is having an ALL VEGAN CUPCAKE BAKE-OFF!
As for Chef Chloe I’ve been following her ever since she beat the competition in 2010. She truly is an artistic genius when it comes to vegan cooking and baking. Her ability to dissect traditional omni dishes and convert them to delicious vegan versions is quite astounding. Don’t believe me? Check out her recipe for Vegan Goldfish Crackers.
Actually go check out the recipe section of her blog. Here you’ll find her culinary creations, where she not only has veganzied versions of traditional favorites, but she also has some pretty amazing original recipes. C’mon people, we’re talking Cookie Dough Truffles!
Lucky for us, her new cookbook is available for pre-order, and she’ll be on a book signing tour this month.
This gal knows how to make the most of each ingredient and how to combine ingredients for maximum flavor, Each dish is unique unto itself which speaks volumes to her culinary versatility. She is confident in her knowledge of ingredients and techniques, and is able to translate this knowledge to a general audience. I’m no chef, but I never feel intimidated by her recipes. You can tell she loves what she’s doing and my bet is, Chef Chloe is well on her way to becoming a household name.
