Does exactly what it says on the tin!
on 17 March 2006
Although intrigued by the prospect of a non-dairy cheese that actually bore some resemblance to the real thing, I didn't think it was actually posible. Thus, it was with some apprehension that I first attempted a recipe from this book, "mostarella". The recipe instructed me to blend all the ingredients and then cook it until it thickened. After doing this, I was even less confident than before (it looked like porridge!), but put it in the fridge to set none the less. However, 4 hours later, I was pleasantly surprised to see it had set solid, and, later still, when I sliced it up and put it on a pizza, I was even more impressed with the taste! You honestly could not tell the difference; the "cheez" was incredibly tasty and cheese-like. I have since made many more of the recipes from here, and their authenticity never ceases to amaze me! This book cannot be criticised on the grounds that the ingredients are hard to find; any decent health food shop will sell them and many UK based mail order companies sell them if you don't know of any such shops. All in all, this is an amazing book, that I would whole heartedly recommend to any vegan or anyone looking to reduce their dairy intake. A winner!
