If you are vegan and have missed the goodness of real high-quality cheese – you’re in for a treat! Celebrated Chef & Author Miyoko Schinner Introduces “Miyoko’s Kitchen”; The first company to create a full line of handcrafted vegan artisan products.
Many vegan cheeses that I’ve experienced not only don’t taste like real cheese, but also have a handful of questionable ingredients that are debatable whether they are “real food.”
Miyoko’s Kitchen, on the other hand, offers a wide selection of vegan cultured nut products that have simple ingredients, but really tastes like cheese (I’m holding back saying better than, because after years of not eating cheese I simply can’t taste the difference.) But I do know tasty food when I eat it and Miyoko’s nut “cheese” is simply the best I’ve ever had.
- Classic Double Cream Chive – This one reminds me of a high-end Bourdin. It is so delicious I can’t even tell you.
- High Sierra Rustic Alpine – We made a pizza from this and it melted well and tasted incredible.
- Fresh Loire Valley in a Fig Leaf – A beautiful, soft wheel wrapped in wine-cured fig leaves. Featuring unusually aromatic and refreshing notes, it gets sharper as it ages. Made with organic vegan wine from northern California.
- French Style Winter Truffle – An elegant, woodsy, and earthy wheel marbled with truffle-scented mushrooms. Explodes with deep umami flavors in a luxurious creamy base.
- Double Cream Sundried Tomato Garlic – By far my favorite with it’s sweet, creamy, robust flavor with little sundried tomatoes in there. A real treat!
- Double Cream Garlic Herb – Great on crackers. My whole family loved the buttery, savory, mild herb garlic flavor.
- Country Style Herbs De Provence – The wheel is encrusted in French herbs (mild and tangy) It’s also coated in lavender for a touch of sweetness.
- Mt. Vesuvius Black Ash – It may look strange as the outer layer is black, but what’s inside is pure “gold.” Not what I was expecting, but such a pleasant surprise.
All are excellent with crackers and fruit as well as used in many dairy-free recipes. Miyoko’s Kitchen sells artisanal, organic, non-GMO, vegan cheese, developed by Miyoko Schinner, chef, author, President and co-founder of Miyoko’s Kitchen.
“Responding to a rapidly-growing demand among consumers and chefs alike for truly artisan dairy-free cheese products, Miyoko’s Kitchen’s handcrafted vegan cheese line will feature only the finest organic, sustainable and plant-based ingredients available. The result is a long-awaited leap forward in the vegan cheese category and a diverse line of products certain to satisfy the flavor, nutrition and environmental standards of even the most discriminating cheese aficionados,” says Miyoko.
Miyoko’s Kitchen will be offered at fine restaurants and at select retailers in Northern California (with other locations to follow). In addition, the full line of “collections” will be available online. Selections will include Aged Smoked White Cheddar, Double Cream Chive, Bloomy White Brie, and other mouthwatering flavors.
Miyoko stated, “From the beginning, we set out not merely to carve a special niche among the many laudable brands in the vegan cheese space, but to help redefine the category for today’s increasingly discerning chefs and consumers.”
Redefining the category with an array of globally-inspired vegan cheese options never before available in the natural food marketplace, Miyoko’s Kitchen products will all feature the authentic cheese flavors, textures and aromas that have made cheese such a life-affirming culinary joy among consumers, chefs, retailers and restaurateurs for centuries.
