Cheese & Wine Night @ 10 Cable Street – Aldgate East

“I could never go vegan… I love cheese too much” 🙅🏼‍♀️🧀🚫 {complimentary}

This is the phrase I hear more often than any other when discussing veganism, and I get it because that was me 364 days ago (yeah, that’s right)🙋🏼‍♀️ I just could not grasp how people could live without that creamy, crumbly, sharp goodness in their life 🤷🏼‍♀️ I won’t lie, vegan cheese isn’t exactly the same. It just isn’t. But I found that once I went vegan, my tastebuds changed slightly and I can honestly say, hand on heart, that I no longer miss the taste. My palette has completely adjusted to the taste of vegan cheeses 👅

Having said all of that, I visited @mokofood’s vegan wine & cheese night at @tencablestreet this weekend and was BLOWN AWAY by how realistic some of the cheeses were. I mean, honestly, these cheeses were just incredible!

Moko collected some of the best cheeses from around the world to showcase, alongside her vegan salmon (@f_ish_notfish) and @jolley_chris & I went to town on a smorgasbord of absolute deliciousness.
The cheeses we tried were:
🧀Camembert – @mousesfavourite .
🧀Blue – @mousesfavourite .
🧀C’e dairy? – @iamnutok .
🧀Camambear – @silvermoonfood .
🧀Black pepper chèvre- @silvermoonfood .
🧀Mature farmhouse – @kindaco .
🧀Wood smoked cheese – @foodbysumear .
🧀Garlic & chive chèvre – @theartyvegan .
🧀Hard blue – .
🧀Baked Camembert – @kindstateofmind .
🧀FORMOS Aged cashew – washed rind –
It’s tough to pick a favourite as the standard was very high but I was always a fan of blue cheese and this is the first time I’ve had a vegan version and both of the blues were fantastic 👏🏼
You can buy these cheeses from the vendors online or at markets. I also highly recommend following @tencablestreet for more information on the next wine & cheese event because it’s a cracker of an evening (pun always intended). The wines on offer were also superb (thanks @tomottey ) 🍷 Moko also hosts vegan cheese making classes which I’m definitely signing up for! Let me know what your fave vegan cheese is in the comments! 💬
