Natural Awakenings News: Michigan Chef Publishes Vegan Dessert Cookbook
Chef Valerie Wilson

Chef Valerie Wilson, also known as Chef Val and Macro Val, has come out with her sixth cookbook, Simply Healthy Scrumptious Desserts. The cookbook is a collection of some of her best desserts from her cooking classes, all vegan, sugar-free and whole foods, no refined sugars and no refined flours, with gluten-free options.

“Sweet potato brownie with aduki fudge frosting, lemon meringue pie, peanut butter aquafaba ice cream and fig truffles are just some of the scrumptious recipes in the cookbook. Yes, you can have your desserts and be healthy too,” Wilson says.

Wilson has been in the food industry since 1985. Having lived a vegan, macrobiotic lifestyle since 1993, she started teaching cooking classes in 1997. She still teaches in southeastern Michigan and elsewhere via Zoom and DVD, hosts Real Food with Chef Val, her online radio show, twice a month and offers lifestyle counseling and personal chef services.

Author Scott Sayer writes in the foreword of Wilson's new cookbook, “Enter Chef Valerie Wilson, a plant-based chef who has put in the time to achieve mastery. You can see it in her eyes when she talks about cooking. Each recipe is like a revelation.”

The cookbook costs $19.99. For more information or to purchase a copy, call Valerie Wilson at 734-722-4553 or visit
