Hasn't ANYONE here tried Miyokoi Schinners' Artisan Vegan Cheese???

 

http://www.amazon.com/Artisan-Vegan-Cheese-Miyoko-Schinner/dp/1570672830/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1360419639&sr=8-1&keywords=artisan+vegan+cheese

 

I haven't either, but have copied a recipe from the "look inside" feature. Not complex, just takes time for ingrediants to ferment.

ALL the reviews are 5 star. Ones that aren't are complaining about kindle format.

Maybe you should start a new thread on this, as this one is pretty old and a slightly different topic.

There is a thread on this book over at the PPK. I haven't bought the book mostly because people seem to be having a lot of trouble with mold growing on their cheese, which makes me think the method hasn't really been tested in a variety of home kitchen conditions. But we'll see. I am highly intrigued.

Thanks!!!!

I'm an absolute fan of the vegusto cheeses, only ones i consider close to real cheese, far above daiya. + they are gluten free. For pizzas they have a cheese sauce so no problems with melting. Mix it with small chunks of their other cheese and tadaaaaa !

I had Daiya mozzarella cheese on a pizza years ago. And i thought it ruined the pizza. Judging by your question, I'm guessing they have a new version. and that I haven't tried yet.
I have been making my own Mox-arella with cashews and its been pretty good.
but i just heard that there is a new company called Miyoko Kitchen, that has a line of vegan cheeses including a mozzarella. I'm looking forward to trying that.

Daiya blocks are completely different from shreds!
I like the Havarti jalepano, and monterey jack a LOT. I also like the cheddar! I find the blocks are as good cold as melty
The shreds I only liked for a grilled cheese- and not the moz at all

I've done cashew moz and find it ok for a sauce, but I can't get the taste right. Like when I use cashews I can't get the right nooch taste. I love nooch sauces- with lemon, miso and garlic

Omg I had a Daiya pizza it nearly killed me. Please no. Never again. I felt terrible, it tasted terrible, I almost was physically ill. The crust and sauce where great , but this Daiya cheese stuff is horrid i'm sorry. And the fake pepperoni where the saltiest things I have ever eaten, I had to remove them. It may be vegan but I think its worst for you then dairy cheese and real pepperoni.

Daiya pizza is awful!
Have you tried the blocks?
Daiya should really get rid of the shreds and change up the pizza. The block munster in delicious on pizza! I also hated the crust

I don't mind the Daiya pizza, it reminds me of the weird cafeteria pizza we had in school. My only real complaint with it is the gluten free crust, it's too thin and hard and chewy.

I haven't but I have bought the cheese premade and it was so delicious I'm tempted to get the book and give it a shot. It just seems hard and it's so much easier to buy it from a store...

The 3 best cheeses I've had are

1. Daiya cheddar block (makes an amazing grilled cheese). It's a completely different taste from their shreds.
2. Miyoku's vegan mozz. It melts and it browns, amazing. If it wasn't so expensive I would make pizza with it every day.
3. Chao creamy slices

Me too. I've been thinking about getting the book, but the idea of creating cultures is intimidating to me.
