SAN FRANCISCO — Heading into the holiday cooking season, Miyoko’s Creamery, known for its award-winning European Style Cultured Vegan Butter and vegan cheeses, is introducing the world’s first vegan butter cooking channel. This channel will showcase how Miyoko’s vegan butter melts, browns, bubbles, bakes and spreads just like animal dairy butter.
Streaming on YouTube with notable chefs and experts like Nicole Rucker (Fat & Flour in LA) and Tara Punzone (Pura Vida), The Vegan Butter Channel by Miyoko‘s Creamery shares essential how-tos, cooking techniques and recipes for dishes ranging from Buttery Vegan Tagliatelle Pasta in a Butternut Squash Cream Sauce with Crisped Sage to Vegan Butter Enriched Gingerbread Cinnamon Rolls with Spiced Vegan Butter Cream Cheese Icing, and much more.
“With The Vegan Butter Channel, people don’t have to take my word for it – they can see vegan butter perform for themselves, and hopefully are inspired to cook some of these recipes – or variations – at home,’ says Miyoko’s Creamery founder and CEO Miyoko Schinner. “I created our vegan butter because as a chef and cookbook author, butter is the foundation of so much of my cooking and baking, so it was important that any vegan butter I use tastes and performs up to the highest standards,”
Miyoko’s Creamery launches The Vegan Butter Channel on the heels of their recent landmark legal victory, where they fought for and won the right to use the word “butter” on the labeling of their award-winning European Style Cultured Vegan Butter. In a watershed moment for the future of food, the lawsuit challenged the notion that dairy milk is the only way to make proper butter, with Miyoko’s vegan butter serving as the leading example of high-performing, great-tasting butter made from plant milk. Miyoko’s European Style Cultured Vegan Butter combines age-old butter-making techniques with plant-based ingredients, resulting in a vegan butter that competes and even surpasses almost any others on the market.
The Vegan Butter Channel will air three exciting series, including Making It Butter & Vegan (launching later this month featuring talented chefs creating butter-forward vegan dishes); The Vegan Butter Academy (a series designed to teach home chefs both foundational and expert techniques for cooking with butter); and Phenomenally Vegan (featuring Miyoko Schinner with notable guests talking all things butter and cooking a recipe together).
