  1. welcome to our wonderland

    everything looks so yummy!

    I don’t like bacon of any kind either , I also don’t like smokey anything wow and we live in the BBQ capital of the world. 🙂

    OK are you sitting down I’ve never tried tofu? I know SHOCK! I have a recipe that uses the soft tofu in a smoothie and i’m too chicken?? should I try it. Well first I have to buy a blender.

    I do love your granola will have to try to make some this weekend
    and I could just eat all that coconut till I’m sick! 🙂

    I’m not a fan of dehy-apple pieces either, I don’t really know why. However, those vegan cheeses looked A+mazing. My mouth watered as I looked at the cheese feast.

    That is so crazy that you’re using eggplant to make bacon! I can’t wait to hear how it turns out! I loved your little comments about being human, american, etc…ha ha! 🙂

    Jaw dropped at the sight of that incredible cheese party!

    Cheese party–how fun! I dislike animal bacon and cheese but like the fake parts. It’s because the part that grosses me out is the fattiness and flesh-like aspects of it. I was pretty blown away when I first tasted Dr Cow cheese and yours looks just like it. I am sure I’d love that stuff. my husband who dislikes cheese didn’t care much for it.

    The smoker looks so cool. I would be smoking everything.

    okay, i wouldn’t consider myself a ravenous fan of smokey foods, but that smoking gun is just plain cool.
    i am still so fascinated by everything you are able to create every day. such an amazing experience!! i’m not a big fan of cheese, either – i can take a mild mozzarella and a small amount of goat cheese, but i’m fine leaving them, too. (and do, as i go more and more vegan by the day :P) so i’d be really curious to try a raw cheese. and yes, that is the most raw cheese i’ve ever seen! haha

    wow! look at all those gadgets I wouldn’t know what to do with! 🙂

    Amber… if I saw one piece of raw vegan cheese, it would be the most raw vegan cheese I’d ever seen 😛

    I, too, hate bacon, so high five there! And generally dislike dried apples (something about the spongey texture…)

    And now I’ll probably duck off again, as the combination of a stupid cold and 50 exams to mark in two days makes me less than eloquent when it comes to espousing the wonders of your creations!

    There’s so much to say but too little time……I’ll just leave you with the fact that the cheese buffet has me licking the screen over here in T-town. I MUST travel westward to come visit you amazing culinary genius’ in OKC very soon! I’m loving the play by play!!!

    You are speaking my language. Nut cheeses and macadamia with olive tampenade??? ME WANT FOOD!

  11. miss v

    a cheese party, you say? i’m glad you olive one turned out so well. you definitely seem to be good at making them, so hopefully you’ll learn to love cheese even more.
    and i can’t believe you don’t like smoky flavors! i was in heaven when i saw that smoke gun! however, i’m sure your eggplant bacon was just as awesome with out the artificial smoking. 🙂

  12. miss v

    oh, and ps about the black salt – it’s awesome for eggy dishes. it sort of has that egg-sulfur flavor (sounds weird, but it works). however, it’s easy to get carried away and then you end up with a salt lick on your hands!

  13. Tanya Alekseeva

    OMG Amber! You must’ve been so cheesed out and haha was this about the time you commented on my blog saying the white calcium wall I was touching looked like a giant cheese wall? I had to laugh out loud reading your blog, you must be dreaming in cheese! PS I had no idea Russell James is teaching you- I get his updates all teh time and he just emailed through a link to your blog! How cool!

  14. Ela

    Wow – this is some high art in the kitchen. Smoking gun lol. Great preservative technique but there are also some health concerns with using smoke, so your tastebuds might be sensible.

    The raw tofu is just a hilarious idea to me!

    I love eggplant but hate bacon, so maybe I’d love that. The cheeses really are beautiful – and if you liked them, maybe I would too (big cheese hater that I am).

    Those cheese are super impressive! I just got a new set of square ice cube trays that I was thinking would make great cheese molds… These flavors are definitely inspiring, and now I want to make more than the standard sort of cashew cheese.

  16. River (Wing-It Vegan)

    I love reading about all your raw cooking adventures! Your coconut cracking skills are very impressive!

    I am totally fascinated by that magic smoking machine! And the bacony eggplant and the nutty cheeses! Awesome!

  17. Michelle

    Cheese…cheese…cheese…it’s everywhere and it all looks so good! Oh how I wish I was there! :o)

    Oh, that bacon eggplant sounds yummy…actually, everything does! I’ve never had coconut yogurt, but it sounds like something I would really like. I must buy that raw cook book that you recommended!

  18. Andy Dufresne

    Those cheeses look so so so amazing. Wow!

    This is riiiiiidiculous. I don’t even know where to begin. I can’t even believe that cheese party. So fun. I love eggplant bacon. I sort of know what you mean about barbecue. I never really loved it. Until the past few months. My sister made me a bbq chik’n pizza, and I loved it. So then I bought some sauce and put it on something else. I think I like it now.

    I wanna go to raw cooking school (said in whiny voice).

    I had no idea that smoke guns existed! I can’t get enough of smokey flavors, so I may have an investment to make. (:

    I love looking at your cheeses, too! Beautiful.

    Oh, a quick question: is a dehydrator strictly necessary for making these nut cheeses? I’m thinking about buying your instructor’s book, but have no dehydrator.

  22. Amanda @ Hungry Vegan Traveler

    Wow! I want to try all of those non-cheeses!

    I was at a health food store I’d never been to before in Tampa earlier today and was surprised at the selection of vegan cheeses. They even had vegan feta! I’m going to work hard and save up my money and throw a wine & vegan cheese party.
