Tuesday, March 13:Plant Based Cheese: Better For You and the Environment with Kari Wheaton. Kari Wheaton advocates for healthier plant-based food choices through her food preparation videos illustrating why she lives the vegan life and why she believes everyone should adopt a plant-based lifestyle. Vegan cheese formulations have been perfected by a vast number of chefs who make it a passion to experiment in flavors, textures, and ingredients. Itís become a hobby much like home-brewing for some aficionados. They can be as easy to make as vegan mozzarella to the more time consuming fermented artisan vegan cheeses. Kari will share her insight into the ingredients techniques used.
