Be warned though; this book isn't for people after instant gratification - you need patience. Even something like the mozzarella, one of the 'quickest' recipes in the book, is going to require at least 15 hours to prepare. But the waiting has sure been worth it so far.
Now ned to find some carrageenan - I want to be able to make melting cheeses next! Imagine the novelty! A vegan cheese that actually melts!
Seriously, I have met many a vegetarian who said they would go vegan if it wasn't for cheese, and as far as store bought cheeses go, I know, the vegan versions don't leave a great deal to be desired. Well this book has you covered, so now there is literally no excuse!
I have made the Cashew cheese with quinoa culture and it tastes just like Ricotta cheese. It is not suppose to be what she intended with the recipe, but it works for me, because i was missing Ricotta. Just try for yourself, it is a great pile of knowledge.
Well I can honestly say I am pleasantly surprised at the ease of making the dairy free cheeses in this book! Described in a chatty fashion you feel as if you are sitting in the kitchen with the author - so good are her recipes - the ingredients are all easy to source either from major Supermarkets, Amazon or her comprehensive list in the back of the book of Companies ( including Amazon) who will sell the ingredients at decent prices by mail order.
Vegans and Vegetarians will no doubt already have the ingredients in their larders but for those who haven't the book uses mostly Cashews and other nuts, Nut butters, tapioca flour and unsweetened Dairy free Yogurt and Milk. All of which I sourced quickly on Amazon and which were delivered early today.
I have just experienced making and eating my very first melting cheese and OMG! It is Divine!! and so similar to Cheese made from dairy my husband didn't believe me when I told him what he was eating wasn't his usual cheese! You could have knocked him over with a feather! He was stunned and so am I!
100% Recommended to Every Vegan, Coeliac, Vegetarian and Simply Anyone who does not or cannot eat Cheese made from breast milk for baby animals (and Let's face it Dairy IS BREAST MILK for Baby Cows! Sheep! and Goats!)
As to the recipes, most of the ones I've tried have worked well, but I don't agree with the success of freezing, as some of them have defrosted to a weird consistency. The Cashew Yoghurt is wonderful - the first yoghurt I've made that has a good, thick and tasty consistency - I no longer have to travel into town to buy yoghurt, and it's far cheaper anyway.
Once I got in to the swing of it and the routine I was surprised by the results, both creamy, tangy and flavoursome.
Looking forward to doing a ambitious cheese board with crackers at Christmas to impress my non-vegan guests
