If I got a quarter every time I heard “I couldn’t be vegan because I could never give up cheese!” I’d be very, very rich. But what is cheese, really? And why is it so difficult to give up? Chef Alex Bury breaks it down in this video.
For those who can’t imagine breaking the cheese addiction, there is a huge variety of vegan cheeses on the market—everything from mozzarella shreds to parmesan to smoked gouda. And lucky for cheese lovers and animals, vegan cheese options are expanding quickly.
