Miyoko Schinner, Founder & CEOMiyoko’s Kitchen
Inspiring the general public through her 5 cookbooks, including the best-selling and “groundbreaking” Artisan Vegan Cheese and The Homemade Vegan Pantry—the Art of Making Your Own Staples, published in June 2015, Schinner also recognizes that not everyone will take up the cause in their own kitchens. To answer this call, in 2014, she launched Miyoko’s Kitchen, which set out to redefine the category of “cheese” with its unctuous, decadent, delicious flavors of handcrafted cheeses made from nuts. Miyoko’s Kitchen currently sells nationwide to thousands of stores, and exports to Australia and Hong Kong.
No stranger to public speaking or media attention, Schinner also co-hosts the national cooking show Vegan Mashup, presents live at major events around the country, and is frequently featured in national and local media.
