Miyoko’s KitchenMiyoko’s brand new cheese company is the title sponsor of Spokane VegFest 2015. Here is a quick bio on the company: We hope to be able to answer that call with the most delectable whole-foods, plant-based cheeses in the world! Miyoko’s products were created by Miyoko Schinner, who embarked on a mission to recreate the range of flavors and textures she had once enjoyed from dairy cheeses before becoming vegan. Several years of experimentation culminated in the publication of her groundbreaking book, Artisan Vegan Cheese (Book Publishing Co., 2012), which she hoped would inspire others to make their own.
