Miyoko’s Double Cream Chive

There’s a lot to love about Miyoko‘s cheeses. (A brief aside: As the Miyoko’s Kitchen website points out, “Because our product isn’t made from dairy, in the state of California, we can’t call it cheese … we’ve decided simply to go with the flow, call our creations cultured nut products, and have fun with it! After all, we’re a team of cultured nuts ourselves.” Check out their About Us page; they truly are having fun with it.)

(Check out our last vegan cheese tasting if you missed it.) Alas, not one of the cheeses from our previous tasting is yet available here in Ashland (we’re working on this). Fortunately, the … Read more

Welcome to the vegan cheese revolution

There was a time not long ago when eating vegan cheese was not, to put it mildly, the most enjoyable experience. These were the days when “it melts” was considered a major product selling point. Thankfully, those days are behind us. We live in a Renaissance period of vegan cheeses. This blog is dedicated to exploring these … Read more
