Executive Pastry Chef
My name is Danielle Maupertuis, I am Belgian and worked for 5 stars hotels as Executive Pastry Chef in the UK and abroad, winner of silver and gold medals in International Culinary competitions.
Author of a Cookbook “Vegans deserve better than a fruit salad”, Olympia Publishers,
My challenge is to convince people Vegan desserts are easy to make, taste yummy and look fantastic.
I am actually teacher at the Vegetarian Society Cookery School and take part in a 5 days training for Chefs. I also offer courses for foodies and amateurs.
I give online courses about themed desserts (Halloween, Christmas) where we focus on fine dining recipes and presentation.
I am preparing a second cookbook “Veganissimo”, in which I definitely aim to bring up the standards of Vegan Pastry, preparing us to penetrate the exciting world of Culinary Awards.
Writer in magazines (Vegan Life, Plant Based…), I also present cookery demos in Vegan Shows (Vegan Life Live, Vegfest…).
I am al now present at the RHS Flowers shows with my demos “How to use plants, herbs and flowers in vegan pastry”. Create a bridge between our so famous Flower Shows and Vegan Pastry was one of my dreams … fulfilled!
