Vegan - a word that turns many away. If you really want milk just sub in the nut or soya milk for real milk but do not let the word vegan stop you from looking at this book. The recipes are perfect - they have never failed me and I make them every year for all the birthdays in our home. If you also love the science of baking its a good book as you can see all the tricks used to replicate the same chemistry as dairy and eggs. I would happily throw out all my baking books and just keep this.
