I’M SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Made in Nashville: Door 86 Artisan Vegan Cheese
When the topic of a vegan diet is brought up, one of the most common objections you’ll hear from any non-vegan (vegetarian or omnivore) is, “But I couldn’t live without cheese.” I admit; I’ve said it.
But, y’know, things change. For many reasons, I’m looking for dairy alternatives. There are some great soy-based ice creams and treats as well as a good sour cream and faux cream cheese. There are even good faux mozzarellas and cheddars that actually melt. But what about a nice brie? A Stilton? Something to eat with your favorite wine or with have with a group of friends? That’s when you go to Door 86.
Door 86 started as a small operation (get it?) in Denver a few years ago. Daphne Medina began making cashew-based vegan cheeses from the popular book, Artisan Vegan Cheese, and then experimented with her own flavors and recipes inspired by the great cheeses she’d enjoyed from travels around the world.
