History Fact

Thine Mamma

Shakespeare gave us what many see as the perfection of the English sonnet, dozens of new words and phrases that we still use today, and a lasting oeuvre of work that we’re forced to study in high school. He also, in his infinite wisdom, gave us one of the very first ancestors of the “yo mamma” joke:

Demetrius: Villain, what hast thou done?

Aaron: That which thou canst not undo.

Chiron: Thou hast undone our mother.

Aaron: Villain, I have done thy mother.

According to the USDA, “Hispanic-style cheeses are one of the fastest growing styles of cheese in the U.S. because of the growing Hispanic population and the incorporation of the Hispanic cuisine into the American diet.”

The most popular Hispanic cheese in the U.S. is queso fresco. This is traditionally made from raw cow's milk or a combination of cow and goat milk that has been left to curdle and is then strained in cheesecloth and pressed. The taste is generally quite mild, but the fresh, milky texture makes it a great cheese to use in place of heavier counterparts, especially come summertime.

While queso fresco goes amazing with heartier dishes like enchiladas, tostadas or huevos rancheros, it’s also a nice addition to watermelon, corn on the cob or chilled summer soups, serving as a fresher alternative to feta or even goat cheese. (Just keep in mind that it doesn’t keep for more than a few days!)

Other beloved Hispanic cheeses in the U.S. include cotija, aka “the Mexican parmesan,” a crumbly cheese that serves as an excellent salty garnish, and melting cheeses like Oaxaca.
