    I'm so impressed by the work Karen McAthy is doing in making non-dairy cheeses easier, tastier, and more accessible. She's a rock star pioneer! It's extremely rewarding to make real vegan cultured cheeses that are flavourful, complex, and just as delicious as their dairy counterparts. Karen does a great job of explaining the concepts involved in cheese making (e.g. culturing agents, dry aging) rather than just providing recipes with no troubleshooting options.

I love how she describes her experimentation and encourages readers to experiment on their own and to keep detailed records of our cheese making exploits. I just wish she had included recipes for some of the tantalizing cheeses pictured in the introduction, like the almond coconut balsamic vinegar-washed aged blue, the black trumpet mushroom cashew camembert, and the smoked cheddar.

    An OK introduction, but there are more comprehensive books out there. I haven't had a chance to test any of the recipes, so I can't comment on that aspect. There are more non-dairy cheeses popping up that don't seem to be a collection of strange chemicals. An OK introduction, but there are more comprehensive books out there.

    Well written and laid out book with easy recipes. It's highest praise is in the detailed description of the processes from start and finishing many of the varieties of plant-based cheeses.
