Yvonne's Vegan Kitchen is a collection of recipes that celebrates plant-based and gluten-free whole foods. Chef Yvonne Ardestani develops healthy alternatives to the normally not-so-healthy foods, and converts recipes into vegan and gluten-free recipes using techniques learned in culinary school and in professional restaurants. All of her recipes are vegan, white sugar-, gluten-, soy- and dairy-free, and, best of all, devoid of refined ingredients. Chef Yvonne is a classically trained French chef, former restaurant cook under Chefs Suzanne Goin and Breanne Varela, and now a wellness chef. Yvonne’s family, friends, and subscribers are convinced that eating this way reaps numerous health benefits and that it is absolutely possible to eat deliciously vegan! Yvonne is very passionate about and dedicated to promoting a healthier lifestyle, nutrition, helping the environment, and protecting animals from cruelty while still eating deliciously.
