If you follow me on social media or read my blog you probably know that I love to cook and I’m obsessed with cheese. When I attended Just V Show recently I was lucky enough to score lots of great products to review. I was really interested to work with new companies as well as those that I’m already a big fan of. I don’t write about things and say I love them because I’m getting paid money to, I genuinely love the products and want to share that with people. I try to stay on message and only work with companies/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 with the haul of products they gave me. I’ve made various things with them so wanted to showcase what I’ve used them for so far, what ones are my favorites and why.
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 colorful writing. I also didn’t realize that Violife are actually a Greek company. Which I love because I love Greece and Greek food. Hoping to see a Feta on their product list soon.. as I think it would make a great addition to their already vast cheese catalogue.
Here’s what I’ve been cooking up lately with Violife
It’s hard to choose favourites but the Halloumi is great and fries on a griddle pan so well, the creamy tzatziki is soo light & creamy (it’s now officially my favourite soft cheese) & the mozzarella & cheddar are good all round ones to use in a variety of everyday meals/recipes. Violife actually do some great recipes on their site which you can check out here>> http://bit.ly/2hdwPLX
Violife can be found online here @ The Vegan Kind, UK supermarkets like Tesco (with the exception of Tesco Express), at most Holland & Barrett stores and at select Asda, Waitrose, Morrison’s & Sainsbury’s stores.
