I love cheese! I can eat cheese sandwich for breakfast, lunch and dinner without complaining! Do you know that you yourself can make cheese or butter from milk? Do you want to learn how?
I actually learned about this from the California Milk Advisory Board (CMAB), an instrumentality of the California Department of Food and Agriculture, when they recently held a cheese forum to educate Filipino mommies and cooks on the different kinds of California cheeses.
There are different kinds of California cheeses and each one has its own unique qualities – from soft and soft ripened, semi-hard, hard, to Hispanic. This was mentioned by “The Cheese Dude” Mark Todd. He is a cheese expert and consultant for respected dairy organisations in America. He also mentioned that we can recreate these cheeses at home using Real California Milk. I was so surprised as we drink Real California Milk at home!
“The availability of California cheeses in most supermakets gives you the convenience of adding more texture and flavor to your dish when you need it,” said Todd. “However, in case you’re looking for a specific taste for your dish, you can experiment creating your own cheese using Real California Milk at home,” he added.
Queso blanco and butter are some of the cheese products you can recreate using Real California Milk.
“Dairy products made with Real California Milk are packed with flavor because they are produced by well-fed cows from family farms in California,” said Reji Retugal-Onal, CMAB Country Representative. “They are also filled with nutrients like protein, calcium, Vitamin D, and potassium that are needed by both children and adults, according to MyPlate, the US Department of Agriculture’s food guide,” she added.
California dairy products are available in leading supermarkets nationwide such as Rustan’s, S&R, Robinsons Supermarket, and SM.
