Handcrafted in Portland, Oregon this cultured cashew cheese is sold in a traditional style – by the wedge and some varieties even have a rind. But according to the company, what really makes this vegan cheese alternative unique is its firm, slice-able texture.
Vtopian Artisan Cheeses use a base of organic cashews and cultures. Other nuts, fresh organic herbs, and spices are added to make the different flavors. At last check, they had seven standard varieties, plus one rotating seasonal flavor: Aged White Cheddar, Caramelized Onion, Chive & Dill, Macadamia & Cashew, Peppercorn Brie, Port Cheddar, and Reserve Sharp Cheddar.
Vtopian Artisan Cheeses are sold in some natural food stores, but are also available online. See the company’s website below for links. If you’re in Portland, you can stop by the Vtopia Cheese Shop & Deli to pick up some delicious cheeses. And while you’re there, you may want to indulge in one of their vegan sandwiches or dairy-free mac and cheese! Their shop also features varying flavors of the cheeses that aren’t available in stores.
