Ida Dolce has been vegan since 2006. With insufficient vegan options available at her college, she decided she had to be in charge of her own food if she wanted to please her taste buds. Along with her academic studies, she read vegan books and watched cooking shows religiously, picking up little tips and tricks of the kitchen as she went. Realizing she had a knack for creating unique flavor profiles, she started experimenting with recipes on her own. She has witnessed veganism evolve over the years, which has added so much to her vast culinary arsenal, and looks forward to seeing (and hopefully creating) more staples in the vegan world.
