Artisan Vegan Life! MIYOKO SHINNER

! I’m Miyoko, and for decades, I’ve delighted in cooking and feeding people, mostly omnivores. My goal is to put artistry into the vegan lifestyle. Good food is simply good food, and if it’s vegan, it’s even better. I believe that the best food is natural, handcrafted, and made with love (for those who eat and those who don’t get eaten!). And whether you’re a vegan, vegetarian, flexitarian, omnivore, or hardened meat eater, I hope that with my books, DVDs, blog, videos, classes and recipes I can inspire you to step into your kitchen, roll up your sleeves, and embrace the joy of cooking real food, slow food, beautiful food – vegan food. Here you’ll find new ideas, new spins on old takes, and new flavors that make you go, “Wow!” Let me know what’s going on in your kitchen! I converted to vegetarianism at 12, against my parents’ will (!) But at 15, I fell in love with my parents’ collection of the now-classic Time-Life series, “The Good Cook,” reading every page of every edition, whether about pastries or meat, learning the difference between sauté, braise, and stir-fry. I cooked for my family and held bake-offs at my house. My spare time has always been about food, glorious food. In my 20s, I lived in Japan, which prides itself in adopting–then improving upon–the best of other cultures. Within a three-block radius of my house were French restaurants, pastry shops, and Indian food exceeding anything I’d had in the US: a taster’s heaven. When I started to transition to veganism in my mid-20s, I had to find a way to capture all of those rich, complex flavors I had learned to love. I began to experiment, and invited friends every Friday night to enjoy and comment on 10- to 15- course tasting menus. I started to teach cooking, wrote articles for Japanese magazines, and even wrote a vegan cookbook in Japanese. That was never published, but I translated it myself into English, and in the US in 1991, I produced my first cookbook, The Now and Zen Epicure (Book Publishing Company). That was the start of my culinary career in the US.


Miyoko's Kitchen

“I’d go vegan, but I just can’t give up cheese.” Indeed – the lure of cheese is strong, and many of us have fallen to its siren call. We hope to be able to answer that call with the most delectable whole-foods, plant-based cheeses in the world! Our products were created by Miyoko Schinner, who embarked on a mission to recreate the range of flavors and textures she had once enjoyed from dairy cheeses before becoming vegan. Several years of experimentation culminated in the publication of her groundbreaking book, Artisan Vegan Cheese (Book Publishing Co., 2012), which she hoped would inspire others to make their own. Despite the success of the book, people frequently requested that she simply make and sell them. She knew that in order to succeed, she would need a passionate business partner with whom to launch and grow the business. She soon met Lisa Shanower, and the two of them embarked on their cheese journey to create Miyoko’s Kitchen. The two of them assembled an amazing team of passionate vegans with expertise in different areas, and Miyoko’s Kitchen was born!


Bogdan Dzakovic

Bogdan Dzakovic began his federal career in 1979 as an Officer in the US Coast Guard serving aboard ship and later working in illegal narcotics interdiction. Earned a graduate degree in Security Administration and served as a Special Agent/criminal investigator for the Naval Investigative Service. He started working for the Security Division of the Federal Aviation Administration in 1988 as a Federal Air Marshal and later as a Team Leader in the Marshal program. In 1996 he transferred to the FAA Red Team (terrorist team) where he developed some additional expertise in terrorism as a Team Leader and worked to prevent the 9-11 attacks first by working through the chain of command, then going to the Inspector General's Office, the General Accounting Office (which is the primary investigative arm of Congress) and even addressed these warnings directly toindividual Congressmen that were on the various committees that had oversight responsibilities of the commercial aviation industry. After 9-11, when he realized that the government was engaged in a cover up of who knew what, when they knew it, and what they did about it concerning the 9-11 attacks, he filed a formal Whistleblower Disclosure against the Federal Aviation Administration with the United States Office of Special Counsel which is an 'independent' agency which investigates whistleblower allegations and reports directly to the President. After a year long investigation the OSC agreed with most of his allegations stating that the FAA executed its civil aviation security mission in a manner that was a "substantial and special danger to public safety". He testified in front of the 9-11 Commission, which proved to be another government whitewash. In early 2002 he was transferred to the Transportation Security Administration who retaliated against him by placing him in an entry level staff job for the remainder of his career. In 2008 he filed another whistleblower disclosure against the TSA, alleging they weren't doing anything differently than the previous FAA Tombstone Agency except for the expense involved and blatant violations of the US Constitution. The disclosure died on the vine, wasn't even investigated. He retired in early 2015. Realizing that the government's attitude toward whistleblowers is worse now under the current administration than it ever has been, he decided to work on a book detailing the above.
