Tetilla Cheese is a type of cheese that originated in the Galicia region of northwest Spain. It is a soft, creamy cheese made from cow’s milk, and is characterized by its distinctive tetilla or “little breast” shape.
The cheese is traditionally made using whole, raw cow’s milk that has been curdled using animal rennet. After the curds have formed, they are heated and then molded into the characteristic tetilla shape, which resembles a small, rounded pyramid with a flattened top. The cheese is then salted and aged for a period of several weeks, during which time it develops a thin, natural rind.
Tetilla cheese has a mild, slightly tangy flavor and a smooth, creamy texture that is similar to that of a young Brie or Camembert. It is often served as a table cheese, either on its own or accompanied by bread, crackers, or fruit. It can also be used in cooking, and is often melted over dishes like grilled meats or vegetables.
Tetilla cheese is considered a protected designation of origin (PDO) product, which means that it can only be made in the Galicia region of Spain using traditional methods and ingredients.
