Had any bad vegan cheese lately? I've been wanting to blog about Sheese since trying it about a month ago. It's a line of Vegan cheese imported from Scotland. They have all kinds of flavors, as well as both hard and spreadable varieties (my personal favorites are the smoked cheddar and the blue). If you've been missing cheese, than Sheese just might be for you.
I had pretty much given up on the idea of vegan cheese up until this point. In my humble opinion, nothing has come close to the taste or texture of real cheese so I avoided them. I think that Sheese comes closest to the real thing. And I can once again serve cheese platters (with grapes, dried dates and crackers) when I entertain. It also seems to work well in recipes like beer bread, biscuits, panini and tacos. I haven't tried it in a sauce yet, but will test it out sometime soon.
It also seems that Bute Island Foods (the company that makes it) is pretty cool too. Four guys that were brought up as vegetarians and are passionate about producing vegan food (and they're cute too). You can find it online at Food Fight, or go to blackduckimports.com to get a complete list of where it's currently sold.
