One of my favorite foods used to be boiled potatoes with salt, pepper, a lot of butter and a good selection of Camembert.
Turning vegan this became a bit of a challenge. Sure, potato, salt & pepper still were on the menu and butter easily replaced by a vegan alternative. But the cheese – this turned out to be a real challenge. I could not find a vegan cheese which had this right taste and feel, this creaminess and the moluded cheese flavor I so much enjoyed. So when Glücksküche, the company producing Happy-Cheeze, did offer to send me a package to taste, I decided to put those cheeses to the ultimate “Potato and Cheese Test”.
To make sure we are home when the packages arrives, my husband and I took turns leaving the house – that is dedication:)
My sample package has been delivered:
HOORAY & THANK YOU
Inside 4 cheeses, which I reverently unpacked, as they are little works of wonder, based on fermented cashew nuts.
Once the potatoes have been cooked, the fun started.
It’s very elegant, mild and nutty taste does go well with anything and leaves a creamy feeling.
Wild Garlic Cheeze
The subtle, aromatic herbal taste of wild garlic and it’s nice colour make this cheese something special. It makes you nibble on and on. Don’t worry – you will not smell like garlic afterwards:)
Smoked Pepper Cheeze
I love the robust and aromatic, piquant taste of this cheese. If you used to love the smoked cheeses and are looking for something with a lot of character, this is your cheese. It will go well with a good glass of red wine!
Happy White – the new shining star of Glücksküche
I have to admit, I was very excited to try Happy White – the vegan noble mould cheese. And…. I LOVE IT! The creamy white inside melts on your tongue, the moulded crust has just the perfect structure and exactly the taste of a brie or Camembert. This cheese makes your taste buds dance and sing in joy!!
They looked so good, they tasted so good, I did not event want to share with anyone. But marriage sometimes can be cruel: ” In good and bad days – we share all”, so I had to give half of those scrumptiously yummy cheeses to my husband and we enjoyed them together with boiled butter potato, vegan ham and some grilled porcini mushrooms – what a feast!!!
But not only are they really really yummy, they are also healthy: organic, raw and made with nothing more then cashew, water, pink Himalaya salt, spices, vegan fermentation bacteria and LOVE (and I assure you, you can taste the love!)
