Miyoko Schinner

Miyoko Schinner is the tenacious, award-winning vegan celebrity chef behind Miyoko’s Creamery – the most awarded vegan creamery in America. Her passion for her craft and mission is unrivaled. The publication of her groundbreaking book, “Artisan Vegan Cheese”, kicked off the start of the vegan cheese revolution.

Touching people through food, and animals through activism and actual care, Miyoko balances her love of food and animals. In the wee hours of morning, she can be found shoveling manure and feeding hay to the motley crew at Rancho Compasión, and later, leading the charge at Miyoko’s. Whether in the kitchen or the farm, Miyoko makes her mission of feeding the world with delicious, compassionate food the drive behind everything she does.
