When you see a Tetilla cheese, the first thing you will notice is its shape. When you taste a Tetilla the first thing you will notice its rich creamy taste and texture.
Tetilla DO is a mild, Spanish hand-made cheese and so very different from the well-known Manchego cheese. The conical cheese from Galicia is made from the milk of cows grazed on the lush pastures behind the coastal mountain range. The cheese is made from pasteurized cow's milk and has a yellow rind with a slightly greenish cast. The pale yellow paste is elastic and easy to slice, it has some irregular holes.
The cheese smells of milky meadows, of a very young cheese and it has an attractively creamy melt in the mouth. The flavor is similar to a Fontina Fontal, however more flavorful. As far as looks, this cheese make a very nice center piece on a cheese platter.
Ingredients:pasteurized cow's milk, rennet, salt, enzymes.
