Once upon a time, vegans craving a cheesy flavour would need to make do with a generous sprinkling of nooch over their dinner.
But fast-forward to 2023, and people on plant-based diets have much more to savour than just the dusty contents of a pot nutritional yeast, with all sorts of nut cheeses, dairy-free spreads, and even eggless mayo, jostling for a spot on their plate.
And the latest contender for a spot in your sandwich? Julienne Bruno's range of three *fresh* vegan cheeses.
The brand, which launched in 2020, introduced Collection 01 to the market last year which includes Burella, which has a delicate bite and creamy interior; the lightly whipped Crematta; and Superstraccia, which is made with rich creamy curds.
Created in fresh batches each week in-house using organic soya (the protein) and coconut oil (the fat), all three products are naturally fermented through a bespoke system which makes them the first fresh dairy-free cheeses of their kind.
Excitingly they have just made their supermarket debut, joining the virtual aisles at Ocado.
They can also be bought at juliennebruno.com, in-store at the Foodhall in Selfridges London, the Harrods Fresh Market Hall, in Daylesford Organic and select Whole Foods Market stores.
So far the vegan cheeses have thrilled home cooks, but the professionals love them too. They're on the menu at the Big Mamma Group's restaurants, The Harrods Tea Rooms, Sushi Samba and Caravan Restaurants.
Philip Khoury, the Head Pastry Chef at Harrods, even commented 'it’s important to note that its success isn’t derived from the fact that it is a vegan alternative - it’s a gastronomic delight that stands on its own.'2023-03-28T15:39:24Z dg43tfdfdgfd
