Ste Martaen (pronounced sahn mar-tahn) started out as a small business venture by a vegan family. First up, they created an assortment of gourmet vegan cheese alternatives — all of which are gluten- and soy-free — carefully crafted from a blend of organic cashews, nooch, lemon juice, tahini, and other goodies. These aren’t your standard melty Daiya/Teese/FYH pizza or macaroni toppers, but rather solid artisan cheeses meant to be enjoyed with crackers or wine.
They offer five vegan cheese flavors, available to order online or at various brick and mortar stores in Chicago, including two branches of Whole Foods: Colby, Smoked Gouda, Pepper Jack, Muenster, and Olive! Each cheese is $5.95 per half-pound.

Here’s a photo of the goods, from the Ste Martaen website:

Next, Ste Martaen started their vegan food truck, and Monday through Saturday, the truck delivers a revolving variety of 100% vegan goodies like breakfast burritos, BBQ sliders, tacos, chik’n wings, sandwiches, and more to Chicago and its suburbs. They’ve also formed a partnership with Soul Vegetarian East, so a selection of SV dishes is usually available in addition to the standard menu. Ste Martaen’s menu changes daily, but it’s always up-to-date on their website. You can also purchase Ste Martaen’s vegan cheese right at the truck.

Payment can only be made with cash, so make sure you hit up an ATM!
The truck will be rolling into Milwaukee around 1 PM and staying until 3 PM, but specific locations have yet to be announced. Visit the Ste Martaen food truck website for more details on how to request a stop (via phone, Google Talk, Twitter, or Facebook).
