    About Miyoko Schinner

    Miyoko's journey to veganism began in the 1980s, and started to experiment with making her own vegan cheeses and butters, using ingredients like nuts and soy. Over time, Miyoko became an expert in vegan cheese-making, developing a range of delicious and innovative recipes that she later compiled in her book, "Artisan Vegan Cheese." The book quickly became a bestseller and helped to popularise vegan cheese as a viable alternative to dairy cheese.
