"good" vegan cheese is almost like an oxy-moron, heheheh. 

There some "sliced cheeses" that i've tried that i did like though - one name that comes to me off the top of my head is "tofutti".

There are also some vegan "block" cheeses that i've enjoyed.  I forget the brand, but they say on the front "it can be melted" (or something to that affect) and i've actually had success w/that too.

in a recent Vegetarian Times magazine, there was a few recipes on how to make vegan cheese.  They looked great, although i haven't tried any yet.  Let me know if you'd them and i'd be happy to scan and email to you.

I only like the Follow Your Heart melted. It does smell pretty nasty (sometimes I try to get someone else to grate it for me heh) but the smell goes away after it gets yummy and melty in the oven.  The cheddar is weird, but I like the mozzarella and monterrey jack.

FYH mont. jack shredded on pizza with a little olive oil brushed on top of it is pretty great!

Yeah, the Follow Your Heart is the only kind of cheese I like....I think the mozzarella and monterrey jack are pretty much the same thing, but you're right, the cheddar is kinda weird.  And I always melt it in a saucepan before I put it on anything....otherwise it won't melt....ever....

I thought that the follow your heart cheddar lacks taste... and at almost $5 a block I want taste. I love the mozz though. It tastes the same to me. I also like the galaxy brand slices. I have a coupon listed in the coupon section. You have to be careful though and only get the packages that say vegan. I made this mistake and got a pack with casein which I cant begin to understand the people that make vegetarian cheese with animal ingredients. Why bother. If a vegetarian will eat veggie cheese with casein they might as well just go for the real deal, right?

Hey - I don't believe there was ever mention of Sir Didymus having his own personal portable "BoES" :) (stops!  sniff - clean!  turns head - sniffs side 2 - clean! check! check!) - no, no mention indeed....

you think that's bad...caught my Loki licking the shower curtain one time - yum!...(which gives me a great idea for a new thread....)
