New year, new you? We all try our hardest. And a lot of people are turning to vegan diets this year because of the health benefits. Vegans, as you possibly know don't consume animal products, relying on plant-based foods such as fruits, vegetables, legumes, seeds, whole grains and nuts for their nutrition. And of course, that is great for your health.
Sounds wonderful in theory but one of the hardest foods to give up for most would-be-vegans is cheese.
I've tried the new Bio-cheese vegan options from supermarkets and they are quite like traditional cheese (even though they are made from coconut oil), but how much better if you could learn to make your own.

That way you can keep the costs down and also know exactly what is going into your cheese.
Unwrapped Pantry in Belgrave is offering vegan cheese making workshops, where you can find out how to make vegan cheese and exactly what it tastes like.
Afterwards, you get to eat your cheese with some crackers and wine at Harvest Cellars (168 Colby dr Belgrave South). This is a boutique bottle shop featuring wines you won't find in your normal big chain stores. They also offer quite a large selection of local organic wines and beers along with helpful advice on choosing wines.
Unwrapped Pantry is a retail shop in Belgrave South, selling nuts, seeds, flours, pulses, grains and sugars in bulk. Buy as little or as much as you need. Customers bring their own containers from home and fill them or use the paper bags provided.
