Darë Vegan Cheese

Through her experience in Asheville’s culinary scene, Gwendolyn drew motivation from the limitations imposed by a meat- and dairy-free lifestyle. As the vegan chef at Warren Wilson College, Gwendolyn found a willing audience where she was inspired to dig into experimentation. She turned to the tradition of cheesemaking and explored fermentation to coax flavor and texture from her creations.
