Yes folks, our team’s dreams became reality. A little lump of very real cheese, and not a cow in sight.

A year ago the lab cowboys themselves only half believed it could be done. But the Stainless Steel Cow did it: by means of precision fermentation, real casein was created. Casein is the unique protein that makes cheese cheesy, stretchy and all kinds of amazing.

With these caseins, Those Vegan Cowboys made a small cheese– a first of its kind. Lab sheriff Will Van den Tweel: “It has some ripening to do. But it is real and it is here. It is comparable to ordinary cheese. And yet it is completely free from animal products. With this cheese, recreating any kind of cow’s milk cheese is now possible.”

“What Will is *trying* to say”, our Stainless Steel Beauty Margaret intervenes, “is that Margaret’s Finest is a diamond in the rough. It is 24 carat gold, not to be enjoyed as-is, but the raw material from which artisanal techniques will create the most glorious masterpieces. Blue Stilton, Camembert, ripe Gouda, sharp Cheddar – they all start from the same humble beginnings. Today, I’ve thrown humble out of the window. This is a new era.”
