Harvest Co-op vegan desserts
Sweet success

Harvest Co-op baker Colin Huggins claims his vegan chocolate-chip cookie is the " best you’ll ever taste. " The former bike messenger missed his daily pastry fix after the Co-op’s previous baker quit, so Huggins took over the job himself; within six months, he’d perfected his recipes based on soy-dairy products, egg replacements, and organic ingredients.

Huggins also break dances, and his creativity seems to have followed him into the kitchen. He sweetens the almond-jam bar with maple syrup and uses barley-malt-sweetened chocolate chips in his brownies. The cherry-topped cheesecake is made with tofu and has an organic ginger-snap crust, but the taste is perfectly familiar. That’s true of all Huggins’s goods. Stop in to give ’em a try, and see how the baker’s head spin is coming along.

Available at the Harvest Co-op Café, 581 Mass Ave, in Cambridge, and 57 South Street, in Jamaica Plain, for $1.75–$2.50.

Issue Date: June 20-27, 2002
