Dr. Cow Nut Cheese

Dr. Cow Nut Cheese

Posted on 14. Oct, 2008 by Yvonne Smith in Blog, Reviews

Going vegan seems like a daunting process for many because they feel they could never “give up” cheese.  It has been proven that cheese is addictive (Google it), and like many others, it was the last animal product I omitted from my diet on my journey to veganism.

But you know what?  I honestly don’t miss it.  With so many wonderful creamy, delicious foods from delightfully ripe avocados to the fabulously decadent cashew ricotta from Veganomicon, what’s to miss?

That being said, on a recent trip to Pure Food & Wine in NYC, I tried Dr. Cow Nut Cheeses for the first time, and well… Wow.  WOW!  It really is possible to make a rich, flavorful, decadent cheese out of raw nuts, acidophilus, salt and herbs.  Who knew?

They’re definitely not cheap, but so worth a try.  I fantasize about having a wine and nut cheese tasting party at my house.  I will do it at some point.  Maybe when I’m celebrating my show being picked up by a network.  Yes!  Sounds like a plan.

    Hi Yvonne! I adore your site! I was too late to nominate you for the Veggie Awards, but I hope you get it (or got it, if they are over with! You are amazing and I enjoyed hearing your interview on Vegan Radio. Will you be doing more interviews there anytime that you are aware of in the future?
    Any plans for coming to Michigan? I live in Flint where there are no veg restaurants except for one called Steady Eddy’s in our local farmer’s market. It’s not strictly vegetarian, but at least half of it is. We mostly have to rely on the mainstream restaurants that have vegetarian/vegan options on their menu. We are pretty fortunate to be able to find several we like. Seva in Ann Arbor is a real treat to us. We have to drive about 40 minutes to get there but it’s worth it to dine in a beautiful restaurant where everything on the menu is vegetarian/vegan! I, myself am vegan. My daughter is working on the “no cheese” thing!
    Anyway, I love you and your site! Keep up the good work and I hope to hear more from you in the future!

    Hello. Gunter and I would like to invite you to share a meal with us and talk to you about our easy method for making tempeh. We produced this great food in Mich. for 9 years and since retiring???, have set up a web site, produced a dvd and started a non profit foundation for educational outreach. People told us that our tempeh was the best in the whole country and now we want to share with everyone how they too can make the best tempeh or better yet, start a business producing healthy food for the local community. Please feel free to call &40 363 8475 or write so we can get together and have fun eating.
    Looking forward to meeting you

    I tried Dr. Cow and Daiya and both are great. I feel so much better since giving up cheese. I have not drank milk for ten years anyway. It’s basically poision, it is completely freaky to me that we drink this or eat this from another animal. The vegans get it, no one else does!!!
