Queso Fresco

Narragansett Creamery - Providence, Rhode Island

A fine young cheese made in the tradition of the ubiquitous fresh cheeses found across Latin America. Made from local cows’ milk curdled with vegetable based rennet and pressed into large format wheels, this cheese is the perfect addition to any number of dishes you can dream up from tacos to pizza to fresh summery salads. It melts wonderfully, and has a mild, milky, and ever so slightly tangy flavor. This rindless cheese is similar in spirit to mozzarella, but has a snappier texture and more mellow tang.
