The name Tetilla is Galician for ?small breast?, which describes the shape of the cheese ? a pear shaped cone topped by a nipple. Tetilla is a semisoft cow?s milk cheese aged 15-20 days ? very creamy. It got its shape from the teats of a cow. In Galicia they copied this shape as an homage, as there are lots of cows in the area so a lot of the region?s cheeses are made with cow?s milk.
Yellowish ivory in colour Tetilla has a creamy mouth feel with buttery, slightly bitter and tangy flavours surrounding the palate. The cheese is also spreadable.
Try Tetilla with dry full-bodied wine, sherry, young whites, manzanilla and especially the Galician whites - albari¤o or ribeiro. Spanish love their cheese at the end og a meal served with quince paste, fruit, crackers, baked dishes and bread.
Pasteurized cow's milk, rennet, salt, enzymes.
