Ayesha Curry and So Delicious Want Cheese-Loving Americans to Rethink What Dairy-Free Cheese Alternatives Can Do

BROOMFIELD, Colo. — Over the past decade, millions of Americans have embraced plant-based dairy alternatives as part of their daily diet. But there’s one dairy product people just can’t seem to quit: cheese. That’s why So Delicious® Dairy Free is teaming up with celebrity chef, New York Times bestselling cookbook author and restaurateur Ayesha Curry—someone who knows a thing or two about cheesy dishes and seriously delicious food—to prove just how easy it really is to ditch dairy cheese, thanks to new So Delicious Dairy Free Cheese Alternatives.

“I’m a firm believer in eating mindfully, while not depriving yourself of the things you love to eat. Reaching for more plant-based ingredients is one trick I know helps me feel my best,” said Ayesha, a wife and mother of three. “Cheese is a staple in so many of my favorite recipes, and So Delicious Dairy Free Cheese Alternatives are the perfect swap. You’ll see what I mean when you try them for yourself!”

Ayesha and So Delicious remixed a few of her favorite cheesy recipes from her latest cookbook, The Full Plate, and her own recipe collection—a Chicken Parm Burger, Butternut Squash Cheesy Mac with Edamame, and The Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sandwich—using So Delicious Dairy Free Cheese Alternatives instead of dairy cheese.

Together, Ayesha and So Delicious are encouraging plant-curious Americans to experiment with the brand’s new plant-based Shreds, Spreads and Slices in their own family-favorite, cheesy recipes and to tag So Delicious (Instagram/@So_Delicious) for the chance to be featured on the So Delicious channel!

“There’s very fair skepticism among flexitarians that plant-based cheese alternatives can’t measure up to dairy in terms of taste and texture,” said Virginia Kelly, senior director of marketing at So Delicious. “So Delicious is excited to shatter those concerns and blaze new trails with our new line of non-dairy cheese alternatives. Whether you’re melting Cheddar Style Slices in a gooey grilled cheese or sprinkling Mexican Style Shreds on a quesadilla, they taste so amazing that you’ll change your mind on what plant-based cheese alternatives can do.”

Indulging in Ayesha’s plant-based cheese alternative content will make you want to consume So Delicious at mealtime, so prep your shopping list accordingly.
