Animal Free Cream Cheese Contest Winners

Congrats to the winners of the Animal Free Cream Cheese Contest! We challenged 100 chefs to show off their skills by cooking with free samples of Perfect Day’s revolutionary Animal Free Cream Cheese and using it to create a savory cream cheese or cheesecake dish. There were a ton of amazing submissions but our judges could only choose their two favorites in each category. These four talented chefs will each be receiving a custom “cream cheese” blades by Meglio Knives. 

Congratulations again to our winning chefs and a big thank you to everyone who participated!  You can see all the incredible dishes created for this contest at the hashtag #AnimalFreeCreamCheese on Instagram.
