Have you heard of the Five Mother Sauces of Classical Cuisine( béchamel, Espagnole, hollandaise, tomato, and veloute?
Before I went vegan I knew that no matter what type of food I am cooking the Magic is in the sauce.
Now there is no butter, cream or bone broth to go into my sauces. Now it is all about creating rich, savoury, creamy and delicious sauces vegan style.
Recently I came across a fellow vegan- Danielle Arsenault, the founder of Pachavega Living Foods Education, is a lover of many things. She is a passionate Raw Food Chef, Spanish teacher, outdoor enthusiast, mountain lover, cookbook author, humanitarian, environmentalist, vegan and plant-based nutrition expert and lifestyle coach. It is her dream to educate the world about the healing power of plant-based whole foods and a healthy lifestyle rooted in compassion for the planet.
My favourite thing about Danielle is that she has created a wonderful collection of raw sauces. They are inspired by her travels around the world and her understanding of nutrition, tastes and textures.
