Cotija, Queso Fresco, Oaxaca
Not just for tacos, enchiladas and quesadillas; Cotija, Queso Fresco and Oaxaca cheeses are excellent in gratins, salads, pizzas, grilled sandwiches, burgers, and pastas.
This week we are offering a new brand of three varietal cheeses that are closely associated with and are in fact an integral part of Mexican cuisine-Queso Fresco, Oaxaca and Cotija cheeses. The cheeses come to us from a small, family owned business operating out of a new facility in Brentwood, Ca.-Queso Salazar. The Salazar family has been making Mexican style cheese for over 50 years. They make the cheeses in small batches using whole milk from a small herd of Holstein cows.
