Chef Tal Ronnen Launching Kite Hill Vegan Cheese Company
Thanks to a tip, we’ve learned that celebrity vegan chef Tal Ronnen is getting ready to launch his own line of vegan cheese. The new company, called Kite Hill Cheese, has created a Facebook page that describes the line as “artisanal nut milk-based cheeses of remarkable craftsmanship.”
It’s unclear if this venture has anything to do with Jasper Ridge Creamery, another vegan cheese brand co-founded in 2011 by Ronnen. That one appears to still be in limbo.
As mentioned last month, Ronnen is also opening a new plant-based restaurant in Los Angeles described as “an upscale, white tablecloth-type eatery serving Ronnen’s Mediterranean small plate vegan menu.” Prices are expected to range between $8 and $14 per plate.
More work on Kite Hill as we get it. Our source, however, had a chance to try the goods a few months back and called the taste “epic.” Looking forward to it!
