Anthony Femia's Maker & Monger might be a dairy-filled treasure trove, but the Prahran Market store is about to up its vegan game. The acclaimed cheesemonger has teamed up with Melbourne's plant-based maestro Shannon Martinez to deliver two new vegan jaffles, hitting the menu on Friday, January 24.

An animal product-free alternative to Maker & Monger's oozy, cheesy toasties, the vegan jaffles will be up for grabs until the end summer, with punters invited to vote for their favourite via Instagram over the coming weeks. The winning creation is set to become a permanent fixture on the menu.

You can sink your teeth into the Little Carmine ($15) — a hefty concoction of vegan bolognese, mushrooms and house-made cashew mozzarella, finished with garlic, oregano and vegan butter — or, for something more fiery, the Mapo Magic ($15): a punchy combination of vegan cheddar and parmesan, and sichuan pepper mapo tofu.

And, if you want to stock up on some of that vegan cheese for home, a selection of Martinez's preservative-free plant-based products will also be gracing the Maker & Monger retail counter from here on out.

Maker & Monger is open 7.30am–4pm Tuesday, 7.30am–4.30pm Thursday–Saturday and 9am–3pm Sunday.
