About Me

About Me

  • Please describe yourself

    I'm a vegan baking freak and I work hard to make this site a place where like-minded people can compare notes and share eats. I'm obsessed with the hows and whys of food science.

    I like to take a food, study it, break it down to it's smallest components, then build it back up again with no animal products while incorporating maximum flavor.

    This whole breaking down food and building it back up thing I call "foodcrafting" and I do it with as many different foods I can get my hands on. It's amazing how understanding beer brewing science can make you a better bread baker for example.

    The result of this is that Veganbaking.net is evolving from having a 100% baking content focus, to showcasing all vegan food.
