Review: Smoked English Farmhouse Cheese from Miyoko's

If you’ve never tried a cheese from Miyoko’s aged cheese line, I would highly recommend it if you miss the more complex taste of regular aged cheese. The vegan aged cheeses from Miyoko’s are very flavorful and are actually cultured, unlike many vegan cheese lines.

This particular cheese might be the most intense version of Miyoko’s aged cheese varieties, so if you’re trying your first aged vegan cheese, I might suggest going with the traditional Sharp English Farmhouse instead.

Miyoko’s Smoked English Farmhouse Cheese is semi-hard like the other aged cheese in this line and comes in a plastic package of 6.5 oz with a current price of 10.99 on Miyoko’s site.

The ingredients of this cheese are: organic cashew milk (organic cashews, filtered water), organic chickpea miso (organic rice koji (organic rice, koji spores) organic whole chickpeas, sea salt, water), nutritional yeast, sea salt, natural flavors (derived from oregano, plum, flaxseed), cultures. There are 7 servings per wheel of cheese, and each serving is 120 calories, with 4g of protein and 9 grams of fat.

In my opinion, the cheese is best after it’s been kept out of the fridge for about half an hour before serving. This helps to make it less crumbly and brings out more of the cheese’s flavors. Immediately when you open the package of this smoked cheese, you’ll notice that this cheese does not have a subtle smokiness. This cheese is salty, creamy, and intensely smokey. I suggest serving in thin slices with cucumber and crackers to balance the deeply smokey and savory flavors.

I really enjoyed the Smoked English Farmhouse Cheese, but think that I prefer the regular Enlish Farmhouse Cheese from Miyoko’s. However, I am curious to try the smoked Cashew Milk Mozzarella, because I think the softer cheese would offer interesting flavor options when used in a sandwich or salad.
