Chris Rayman, founder of Sproutcraft Creamery, is one of our favorite plant-based chefs. He is an incredible alchemist of all things fermented and one of the best dairy-free cheese makers we know! His kombuchas are out-of-this-world delicious, his fermented plant-based cheeses are utterly craveable, and he adds special touches of wild Ojai flowers and produce that makes every cheeseboard a work of art! We are so excited to be sharing this interview and getting into the mind of talented plant-based alchemist Chris Rayman.
