Our fresh cheese is a lactic style, fresh meaning un-aged cheese. The cheese ripens and drains for 48 hours, after which it is promptly packaged. Our Fresh cheese is bright and lemony, with a clean milky note on the finish. For people familiar with Fresh Chèvre, that is a good comparison; but without the gaminess sometimes associated with goat cheese.
This cheese has a soft, delicate curd. It crumbles well when cold, and becomes more spreadable as it warms up. These cheeses are very versatile and can be used for a variety of dishes or simply served on a cheese plate.
The heat of the chilis is complimented by the lemony tang of the fresh cheese to create a burst of spice. Use this cheese in scrambled eggs; crumbled on tomato soup; in a melon salad with watermelon, cantaloupe, pistachios, with a white wine vinaigrette.
