Fran Costigan, chef, cookbook author and Director of Vegan Pastry at the Rouxbe Online Culinary School is internationally renowned as the authority on vegan desserts. Professionally trained, Fran was a chef in both traditional and vegan pastry kitchens before moving into teaching 25 years ago. Her unapologetically luscious confections lack nothing — except dairy, eggs, white sugar, and cholesterol. Fran’s vegan desserts are appropriate for everyone who loves dessert, whether or not dietary restrictions are an issue. Fran loves teaching and enjoys mentoring students off all levels, from beginner to pro in The 90-day Essential Vegan Desserts Course she developed and leads at Rouxbe, the world’s leading online culinary school.

Fran’s cookbook, Vegan Chocolate Dessert: Unapologetically Luscious and Decadent Dairy-Free Desserts, is available in German, French and Italian editions, and follows the classic, More Great Good Dairy Free Desserts.

You can find Fran sharing her knowledge and passion across North America and Europe, at schools, conferences, festivals, and corporations at resorts and on cruise ships too, and in 2020 – 2021, primarily online.

A professional member of the International Association of Culinary Professionals, Les Dames d’ Escoffier, and American Culinary Federation, Fran is a proud to be an advisory board member of the New York Coalition for Healthy School Foods, and Main Street Vegan Academy.
