2021 Vegan Cheese

Conscious Cultures

We know. We know. Vegan cheese? But when Conscious Cultures’ brie-like Maverick appeared on restaurant cheese boards, it was so good that it had us second-guessing our own taste buds. And when the Barn Cat arrived, with its bloomy vegetable-ash rind and veggie-ash inlay, we second-guessed it being labeled vegan at all.
