New Vegan Cheese Shop Opens in Cincinnati, Ohio

Owned by passionate vegan and skilled cheesemaker Heather Donaldson, Mad Cheese is known for its impressive lineup of handcrafted vegan cheeses, both fresh and aged alike. Donaldson’s dairy-free cheese recipes utilize nut and legume bases along with certified vegan cultures for that iconic cheesy tang. Mad Cheese varieties range from ricotta, feta, brie, and parmesan to pimento, cheddar, and beyond. The brand also keeps things fresh with an ever-changing cheese-of-the-week variety. All Mad Cheese recipes utilize organic and sustainably sourced ingredients whenever possible.

During her studies to become a registered dietitian, Anja—a longtime vegetarian—transitioned to a vegan diet. Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.
