Join us for a tasty event with Cordon Bleu pastry chef and cooking instructor Rose Deneen for her cookbook Baking With Vegetables: From the Garden to the Oven! She will be talking about her recipes and her life as a pastry chef and culinary arts professor at a community college outside of Chicago. Deneen, a celebrated Chicago pastry chef for over 30 years and associate professor in Culinary Arts at Moraine Valley Community College near Chicago, will talk about what inspires her to create outstanding desserts that count on vegetables to make the outcome a sweet success.
Deneen will share samples of tasty desserts which include extraordinarily successful secret ingredients, otherwise known as vegetables. She will be demonstrating 1-2 recipes from her book and will provide a reciple handout for attendees.
“Many people make desserts with vegetables,” says Deneen, “but most bakers don’t include cauliflower in brownies and other vegetables that give a wide array of desserts an extra ‘pop’ A frozen chocolate mousse that includes beet juice is one such example –it’s a delicious pairing of flavors unlike anything else.” Deneen’s cookbook is a collection of her favorite dessert recipes plus gorgeous photos of the show-stoppers. The cookbook was created for cooks of all levels of baking expertise. Beets, Pumpkins, Cauliflower, Zucchini, and other vegetables quietly star in Rose Deneen’s delicious and easy baking recipes. Baking With Vegetables: From the Garden to the Oven! includes more than 50 delicious recipes that turn fresh garden vegetables into tasty baked goods.
