SO PUMPED! teese, one of the best vegan cheeses ever (you may recognize it as the cheese in the LA’s best vegan deep dish), is now available at whole foods in california, nevada, arizona and hawaii. this is so great, i think i’m gonna celebrate with a buffalo mozzarella style pizza. what up:

i don’t know about you guys, but i think this sounds like a pretty sweet gig. food for lovers (makers of the best fucking vegan queso aka cheese sauce that you will ever try) announced yesterday that they’re looking to hire brand ambassadors in los angeles, portland and san francisco.

VEGUSTO IS COMING TO AMERICA! good god. this exciting news and a ringing endorsement comes via isa chandra in this thread at the post punk kitchen! i’ve never tried vegusto vegan cheese, but trusted sources tell me the coveted swiss-made stuff is THE BEST EVER. real life friends who endorse it include a wide range of folks including fat gay vegan on one end of the spectrum (who loves vegan cheese more than all of us combined) and melisser aka the urban housewife on the other (who generally dislikes vegan cheese, but loves vegusto).
for ages, vegusto has been unavailable in america. but that’s all about to change…
what’s the best vegan cheese in america? you tell me. i go back and forth on this quite a bit. daiya was my favorite for awhile, and then the new stretchy teese came out. at first i wasn’t a fan of follow your heart, but hard times pizza completely changed my mind. i can’t decide! what do YOU think? vote below and let us know.

i am used to driving across town for this stuff or ordering it in bulk online, so imagine how happy i was to see it at my the weho whole foods for just $4.99 per jar.Tags: food for lovers, queso, vegan cheese, whole foods
i know i’m like a decade late to this craze, but lately i have been totally obsessed with nutritional yeast based cheese sauces. they’re healthier than processed vegan cheese, and pack a ton of flavor without any kind of weird texture or chemical aftertaste. where has this stuff been all my life? i can’t get ’nuff of the nooch!
my most recent nut-yeast addiction comes in the form of mozzarella chreese by road’s end organics…Tags: pizza

hey everyone! natural products expo west, the world’s largest natural products tradeshow, is going down this weekend in anaheim and we were there all day yesterday.
we got a pretty good feel for the new vegan products that are about to hit the market, so sit back and enjoy this post full of our favorite finds. we’ll start off with stuff from brands that we already know and love—established quarrygirl favoriteses that should be familiar to you guys.
first up: chicago soydairy!
these folks didn’t have a booth at the expo in 2010…but daaaaaaaamn, they made up for it this year with all kinds of craziness! where do i start? their booth was like a vegan party. they had an endless supply of deep-fried vegan mozzarella sticks using teese (pictured above), which were INCREDIBLE.Tags: expo west, products
i’m not even going to say where this snap shot is from…but it’s a local restaurant, and it pretty much illustrates what i refer to as “the vegan tax.”
whew! yesterday was the first annual vegan pizza day, and it was insanely fun. people all over the world were eating loads and having a great time…all in the name of our favorite food: vegan pizza. huge thanks to teese vegan cheese by chicago soydairy for sponsoring this event with us. i know that everyone is already looking forward to next year.
check out the official vegan pizza day facebook page for a huge pool of mouthwatering fan photos, and be sure to upload your own. here are the pictures that readers sent in to us. if you’d like to have yours posted on the blog, shoot us an email. beware, graphic vegan pizza photos to follow. you’ll wanna be sitting down for this.
