Our original press and proud winner of the Vegan Cheese Co Best Vegan Feta award 2020, is a delicious, dairy free, plant-based alternative to cheese that’s nut and soy free.

It’s also free from artificial additives and flavourings, stabilisers, emulsifiers, gums and thickeners.

Handmade in the north of England, each original sourpress is fermented for at least a month.

Herbie’s Homemade original press really tastes a lot like cheese. With a light, fresh, slightly salty tang and a texture that’s firm-crumbly, somewhere between a Lancashire and Cheshire, some might say that’s about right for a cheese made in Greater Manchester!

Original press tastes great with our chilli chutney on a cracker or crusty baguette. Try grating over pasta in place of parmesan or as a topping for pizza.

Ingredients:

Wheat, refined coconut oil* & sea salt.

*the organic coconut oil we use has been steamed gently to remove the taste and aroma of coconut.

Garlic Press is infused with garlic. Chilli Press is infused with red chillies.

Recipe suggestions – Press

Hot:

  • Sauté Press in our very own organic Spanish fermented garlic until crisp on the outside, soft in the middle and bursting with flavour. Serve with a green salad, pitta and guacamole. Garlic can be added as an optional extra.
  • Slice, drizzle with oil and cook as a pizza topping;
  • Blend with a little oat milk, a dash of optional vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper and heat. It will turn into a creamy cheesy sauce to dip or pour over burrito.

Cold:

  • Try grating Press over black bean chilli for a tasty vegan fajita.
  • Sliced with our fermented chilli chutney & crackers on a vegan cheeseboard.
  • Crumble into a baguette with salad for a quick and healthy lunch.

Packaging:

Press is vacuum packed in a 100% compostable vacuum bag.

Cabbaja is packaged in a glass jar with metal lid. Both are widely recyclable.

We use recycled/recyclable carboard postal boxes, and paper and woodwool to pack the boxes.

We may also reuse any packaging such as bubble wrap that we have received on incoming goods from time to time.

We recommend that sourpress is kept chilled and eaten before the best before date on the outer packaging.

Depending upon temperature and humidity, fermented products may last longer than the minimum best before date, as long as they are unsealed and refrigerated. However, we cannot guarantee this.

Once opened sourpress must be kept tightly wrapped in the fridge (preferably in an airtight container) between use to prevent spoilage and will taste best if eaten within 5-7 days.

Orders will generally have around 3 weeks shelf life from dispatch.

Reviews

  1. Siobhan Brennan

    Amazing vegan cheese. Complex flavours that are so tasty. Finally a good vegan cheese is out there!

  2. Rachel Ryder

    Amazing ! Best vegan cheese . Proper cheese . ?

  3. Harry Williams

    Nice vegan cheese. I?ve had the potato cheese a few times.

  4. Marcelle Samuels (gifted cheese)

    First time I’ve had an alternative to cheese that tastes, feels and can be used like cheese. Can’t wait to get some more

  5. Mila

    Such a great nut free vegan cheese.. even the texture feels like crumbly cheese. I am so happy I found this! Most nut free cheeses that I have tried do not taste like cheese at all (like the ones you get in supermarkets); this one tastes like cheese!

  6. Jane (review received by email)

    The sourpresses are absolutely gorgeous! All three taste fantastic and even T has got into them. Texture is great.
    I don’t like whiskey so I wasn’t sure if I was going to like that one but it’s such a subtle hint and I thought helped to round the flavour. Delicious!
