Get Mad, Go Vegan

We make vegan cheese for you.

Look.  Even if you are not vegan, chances are you know someone who is or have a relative that resigns to eating dairy despite having terrible lactose intolerance.  We make it because we care about animals and making really ridiculously good food. 

You can eat it just because it's delicious...  There are many benefits.

About Mad

I went vegan after trying to watch the documentary Earthlings in 2009.  I had dabbled in vegetarianism as a teen but had gotten away from thinking too much about it. The first few minutes of Earthlings changed that for me, instantly and lastingly. I had sought out the film because I knew I needed to know. I had just become a mom and I knew I needed to think more about the world around me and the future.

In 2009, there were a handful of vegan restaurants and options in the Ottawa area. I began to experiment in my own kitchen out of curiosity and necessity. Eventually, I stumbled upon the big world of cashew cheeses and I never looked back.

In 2013 I began selling my cultured cashew cheeses, and eventually developed the meltable style that I make today After a brief hiatus, Mad Faux Cheese came back to Ottawa in 2017. 


Mad Faux Cheese is the best vegan cheese I've ever had! We use it on our pizzas, salads, everything!
