Really good cheese with Max & Bien & more local food stories

@CathyCentral 03/10/2020

Vegans do get bored of hummus after a while, admits Jobien Groen, as she shares the motivation for starting the Amsterdam-based Max & Bien. She tells the story of their award-winning plant-based cheese for the Amsterdam Kitchen radio show (and podcast). Plus lots more local food stories and great music tracks.
