Vegans of Sydney, rejoice — and start preparing your stomach for a cheese onslaught. While avoiding animal products and fiending for cheese don't always go hand-in-hand, COMMUNE is here to help. To paraphrase an old proverb: give someone vegan cheese, and you make them happy for a moment; teach someone to make vegan cheese, and you make them happy for a lifetime.
At COMMUNE's Vegan Cheesemaking workshop on July 1, holistic nutritionist Kate Levins of Nourishing Club will share the skills needed to whip up plant-based cheeses — and yes, we really do mean more than one. Learn how to make sunflower and chive cheese, sesame and miso cheese, and cashew, thyme and black pepper cheese, aka enough for the ultimate vegan cheese platter.
As well as discovering why these cheeses, and dairy-free eating in general, is so good for you, you'll also get to eat what you make in a communal post-class feast. And, while everyone gets the gift of knowing how to fashion their own whenever they like, you'll also get some cheese to take home with you. Tickets cost $60 plus booking fee ($3.39), and they're sure to get snapped up quick.
