Cheese -The ultimate addition to any Mexican dish! Delicious and takes your favourite Mexican meal to the next level.
An ancient food whose origins predate recorded history. There is no conclusive evidence indicating where it originated, either in Europe, Central Asia or the Middle East. The earliest evidence of cheesemaking in the archaeological record dates back to 5,500 BCE. Now, there are many types with around 500 different varieties recognized by the International Dairy Federation.
Derived from milk and produced in a wide variety of flavours, textures and forms. It is formed by coagulation of casein which is the protein in milk. It is then combined with milk fats and most melt at cooking temperature.
There are so many varieties that it’s hard to know where to begin. The unique elements of each type are a combination of the type of milk, country and region of origin, how it is produced and what is added. They can even vary in flavour depending on what the animal’s diet consisted of – the most common animal milk used to produce this delicacy is cow, buffalo, goat and sheep.
Extremely versatile, and valued for having a longer shelf life than many other milk and animal products.
Along with its popularity across the world, it is also a staple to many Mexican meals as a topping to add flavour and texture. If you’re looking for the perfect touch to add to your Mexican dish, then you need to look for high-melt cheeses that gives you the sought-after Mexican texture in tacos, burritos and tacos. The sauces are also a great addition to any Mexican-themed dinner party, making an excellent stand-alone dip, or base for some more exotic dips!
