Sheese I can’t believe it’s not cheese

Vegans can now enjoy the taste of cheese which is not made from dairy but still tastes exactly like cheese thanks to artisan makers of Sheese.

Did you know? that non-dairy cheese originated from China back in the 16th century, which was made using fermented tofu or whole soy. Since then home made vegan cheese evolved and many ingredients are used such as nuts, soy milk, and soy yogurt. Around the late 90s vegan cheese became popular in the commercial field. Within the 00’s a number of different types of vegan cheeses such as mozzarella, cheddar, etc. became available.

Courtesy of Sheese via Gifta I was gifted a few packs to try out and I was highly surprised by the quality, look, texture and taste of all the cheeses.

Sheese

Back in 1988 Sheese was founded by Debs, Frans, Guy and Mark who each are intolerant to dairy products. They bring to the UK an array of award winning Scottish vegan cheeses. All of their dairy free vegan cheeses are a healthy cheese alternative, perfect for people with plant based diets and people with dietary restrictions like lactose intolerance. All are gluten, dairy, lactose & animal free, and certified Vegan & Kosher (Pareve).

Years of research, development and production was involved to bring original, traditional cheeses, from taste to texture, to our tables. Their new range of vegan cheese is made from coconut oil, and doesn’t contain Hydrogenated Fat or Palm Oil. Their soya comes from an IP Source, and is made from the best quality, clean, dehulled soybean seeds as GMO is an important issue to us, and all of their ingredients they use are sourced as non-GMO.

ORSOM Cheese is awesome

Cheese is made all over the world but have you ever had cheese from ORSOM? Their dairy farm is based in Cheshire and they produced the most creamiest and tastiest milk thanks to their cows, who are the most pampered on the planet as they get treated to manicures, back scratches and music. I wonder if they have listened to Old McDonald Had a Farm?

Courtesy of ORSOM Cheese I was gifted a selection of their cheeses. Cheeses though don’t always have to be enjoyed with crackers as cheese is also great used within dishes. So I used ORSOM cheese in dishes which I feel worked beautifully with their different cheeses.

ORSOM

ORSOM cheese are producers of high premium range products which are handcrafted by their skilled cheesemakers in-house at their dairy in Nantwich, Cheshire.

Their cheese is vegetarian friendly and is full of flavour and loaded with personality. As their cows every day are treated with love, from enjoying the sounds of music, having manicures and even back-scratches.

All their milk is collected daily from their own cows and from cows from other specially selected farms near by.

Pancakes may be served anytime during the year but mainly they are enjoyed on Shrove Tuesday in the UK and the Commonwealth which is commonly known as Pancake Day. Pancakes are usually round in shape and typically made using eggs, flour and milk. Why? as historically, perishable ingredients had to be used up before the fasting period of Lent. However if you are like me and LOVE pancakes so much and can’t wait till Shrove Tuesday then check out Haufson’s pink pancake pan which makes pancakes in the shape of hearts perfect for Valentines day or a date night in.
