Mild, tangy, creamy

Fresh cheese is the common name for cheeses made from fresh curds that have not been pressed or aged. Produced throughout the world and commonly used in cooking, fresh cheese is a leaner substitute for cream. When the texture is grainy it is called cottage cheese and when the texture is smooth and creamy it is known as cream cheese, or quark when the fat content is lower. The mild and slightly savoury flavour compliments a huge variety of dishes and ingredients.
