Vegan Cheese Making
with Flip Grater from Grater Goods
Flip Grater and her husband opened Grater Goods vegan delicatessen in Christchurch last year. Grater Goods’ kaupapa is to bring you all the pleasures of fine foods and gourmet plant based deli items. To show you the breadth of plant proteins, to make delicious vegan meats, cheeses and sandwiches available.
Flip has been dedicated to making delicious vegan food for upwards of two decades, as well as writing about it in travel and cooking journals and her vegan cooking and parenting blog. While not cooking she has pursued a successful career as a singer/songwriter, with five albums under her belt and multiple international tours. She also runs CHCH lunchbox delivery service Yumbo.
The name, Grater Goods, is a reference to Flip’s grandfather, whose family business was Grater & Sons, a pork and beef butchery in Sunderland, England, dating back to the early Twentieth Century. Grater Goods is both a nod to this heritage and a subversion of it, with a 100% plant-based menu to cater to contemporary tastes and current planetary priorities.
Flip's workshop will cover all the basics of vegan cheese-making, focusing on delicious spreadable cashew cheeses. Participants will leave with handmade Boursin Cheese, flavours designed by themselves and armed with the knowledge to create vegan cheese at home.
