La Casa Del Formaggio’s Homestyle Fresh Cheese is a young cheese that is creamy in texture and has a milky fresh taste. Its fresh nature means that it has a short shelf life of 30 days but it is delicious when fresh. This is a very traditional cheese that is commonly used in Italian quiches such as Pizza Ripiena or Pizza Rustica, especially at Easter time. We also find it is popular with South Americans as it is reminiscent of “queso fresco.”
