My Love For Violife

If you follow me on social media/my blog you know I’m obsessed with cheese and love to cook. When I attended Just V Show recently I was lucky enough to score lots of great products to review including lots of Violife cheese (hooray!). I don’t say I love things because I’m getting paid to, It’s because I genuinely love the products. I always try to stay on message and only work with brands that fit with my likes/interests and that of my blog.                                                                             

I’ve been a fan of Violife for a few years so will happily write about them and recommend them as I think their products are great. 

It was lovely to see them at Just V Show and they were incredibly generous & gave me a lot of products to try. (Halloumi, herb slices, smoked slices, chicken slices, creamy tzatziki, Parmigiano wedge, cheddar block & mozzarella slices).

 

I was excited to try the new Halloumi and creamy tzatziki as these are things I love and are not something I’ve come across from other brands. Most people in the Vegan community have heard of violife and you’ll find them everywhere from health food shops to supermarkets like Waitrose.

 

 

The new packaging looks so much better than the old which was white with colourful writing. It also includes recipes inside which is AMAZING! I also didn’t realize that Violife is actually a Greek company. Which I love because I love Greece and Greek food. Hoping to see a Feta on their product list soon. I think it would make a great addition to their already vast cheese catalogue.

I’ve made various things so wanted to showcase what I’ve used them for, what are my favourites and why.

 

Here’s what I’ve cooked with Violife

 

Violife do some great recipes on their site which you can check out here

 

 

 

It’s hard to choose favourites but I think the Halloumi is my favourite, then the parmesan wedge. The Halloumi style cheese is really delicious and fries so well on a griddle pan for a crispy outside and soft centre. The creamy tzatziki is so light & creamy (it’s now officially my favourite soft cheese). The mozzarella, cheddar & parmesan are nice all round ones to use in a variety of everyday meals/recipes. They’re always good to have in your fridge for sauces, pizza, pasta, sandwiches etc. I always try and make sure I at least have those 3 in my kitchen.

    Omg all of those foods you cooked up look great! Is it a stupid question to ask what exactly vegan cheese is made from and how does it compare to the dairy version?

    Thanks for sharing, looks like a great product to try (if nor for anything else but to sate my curiosity ?)

      Aww thank you ? No of course not. Coconut and nuts usually, the same as vegan milks. You should check out a video of it being made, it will surprise and fascinate you I’m sure. I’m definitely gonna do some cheese recipes in the future! I personally love it and I enjoy trying all the different ones. When I first tried it I wasn’t sure about it but now I know what’s good and I’ve used it a lot in recipes, so I’m used to it and know what works. The same as normal cheese you can have soft varieties like Brie or cream cheese and harder ones like Parmesan or cheddar.

      Yeah they have the biggest variety. You should definitely give it a go.. I recommend using it in recipes or even just a toastie to see what you think. ?Thanks for reading as always Shevy ✌??

    Yeah that’s not fun.. I know how you feel. It’s the same for us and some US products. What!? I would be all over that if I could. I’m sure you have tons of other great vegan products there though.. I see people post things online.

    • Siobhan L Gale says:

      Oh do they not? I’m surprised as they’re Greek so hardly over here in the UK. Are there no online stores which sell them there. You must have some really good stuff though. You’ve got vegan Ben and Jerrys ha!

        They don’t! I can technically buy it online, but it’s super expensive. Like, a week’s work of groceries on one pack of cheese….I’ll keep waiting 🙂

        I haven’t tried any of the Ben and Jerry’s…I know, right? But I can’t do the sugar. Maybe they’ll come out with a sugar free one soon!
