So alongside our usual vegan “cream cheeses” (yellow chilli, holy smoke, chives), you’ll find two NEW flavours, vegan smoked salmon (carrot lox) and cranberry with pistachios and rosemary. There will also be a very small batch of vegan “goat” cheeses with black ash and paprika, as well as some vegan hard “cheeses” (smoked chipotle cheddar style, turmeric yellow chili, caraway gouda style) and delicious juice pulp crackers made by our friends at Nibsetc (http://www.nibsetc.com/).
