Are these baking kits vegetarian/vegan?
Much of French patisserie requires the use of gelatin, which is made from animal products, therefore, if you use the gelatin, they are not vegetarian or vegan. However, you can visit the substitutions page, you can learn how to replace the gelatin with agar agar or pectin, though you will need to purchase that on your own. You can find links to purchase these ingredients in The Pantry on this site.
Do the kits contain nuts?
Some of the kits will contain nuts, either in a flour (like almond flour in the entremet kit), or as as whole nuts (like hazelnuts in the chocolate kit). If you have a nut allergy, please look at the ingredients in the kit to make sure that there is nothing in the kit that you are allergic to. Additionally, this is made in an environment where other ingredients may come into contact with nuts. We do have a substitutions page that offers suggestions to replace the nuts. Contact us if you just want to purchase the tools from us and buy the ingredients on your own - email@example.com.
