First vegan cheese store in the Netherlands just opened

A few years ago Brad Vanstone started to eat a predominantly plant-based diet, out of concern for the environment, as dairy farming is for a large part responsible for global warming. Replacing meat and milk was easy, but he couldn’t find a satisfying alternative for cheese. He started making plant-based cheese just for at home, which grew into a company! Originally under the name ‘Plantbased Cheese’, Brad was selling the plant-based cheeses at various markets in Amsterdam.

Finding vegan pancakes on a restaurant menu in Amsterdam used to be rare, but nowadays there are PLENTY options! A few hip pancake places opened up which of course have vegan options (can’t open a new hip place without it) but also traditional Amsterdam pancake places all of a sudden realised you CAN make a pancake batter without using milk and eggs.
