Igor & I enjoy to experiment with different cousins and styles of food. We both love trying lots of new things, and often find things that are tasty. So we thought it would be good to have a place to share about those finds.
We do not eat animal products so anything you find on this page is going to be vegan & vegetarian friendly.
This page is going to be under construction for a little while, until we figure out the best format for it. You can click on the image to go to the recipe.
I am really interested in making vegan cheeses. These are luxurious foods and not everyone can afford them. However I see them as my weekly nut intake as well as they have a lovely gift of good bacteria to benefit our digestion. You can read more on this topic in my notes about fermentation & bacteria in the file found below.
Cheese DIY recipes
All of the recipes shared here, are tested for many years and techniques have been improved and validated to work the best if followed. You can then build upon them or tweak them to your own liking. I hope everyone has an opportunity to try one of these cheeses.
Cheese made to order
If you are interested in receiving a cheese made by me, I would be happy to organise it. However at this stage I can only do that for people local to Kingaroy region, or when I visit Brisbane or Sunshine coast areas, which is at this stage 2-3 times a year and I would be happy to delivery it to you.
I am also open to do workshops & demos anywhere in Australia, when I can demonstrate cheese making live for groups of people. During workshops we get to taste many different cheeses and recipes, and I demonstrate how to make fermented yogurt and cashew cheese of our choice on the day. Workshops are offered free of charge, however there are costs involved to organise them which I normally cover upfront if I have that ability, and I then offer a donation box at the venue for anyone who wishes to contribute towards the costs or feel they wish to express appreciation for my time, they can do that too.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me (Lena) on 0422308558 or here.
