If you haven't yet discovered Van's vegan and gluten-free waffles, do search them out in your local grocer's freezer. I found some recently in Stop & Shop in the "Natural Foods" section with other such yummy temptations as Tofutti Cuties, Soy Delicious and Purely Decadent. I had to restrain myself from a la moding these babies with a heaping spoonful of Coconut Milk Purely Decadent.

Thank you to all who came out! It was nice to see so many people interested in gluten-free vegan food (I know... it was the chocolate), and I think there ended up being quite a bit of cross over from both camps.

In the past, I made a lovely lemon chiffon cake with cookie cutter raspberry kanten hearts.
I also like a simple, yet elegant, plate full of truffles and petit fours to decorate a table.
For the cooking demonstration, I will be making a Chocolate Ambrosia Tart with Nut Crust. I've done many variations on this theme, but the easiest way to go is a creamy chocolate pudding made with silken tofu, melted chocolate chips, maple syrup and vanilla. The decadence comes in the crust which is made with dried coconut, macadamia nuts, Florida crystals and coconut oil ground together in a food processor then pressed into a fluted tart pan. If strawberries are flown in from California, I'll be using them as a garnish. Can't wait!
We made a "Sea"sar Salad with Romaine Lettuce, Pear, Avocado and Tahini Dulse Dressing, Zucchini "Spaghetti" with Cashew "Cheese" Sauce and Red Pepper Marinara, and an Apple Pear Crumble for dessert. By all reports, it was delicious!
