The Cheesemaker’s Family
Making traditional Mexican cheese is often a family affair, which is no different at Cheesemakers. We have generations working together, and our recipes have been passed down from our founder’s aunt and uncle to uphold the tradition of cheesemaking. We manufacture multiple varieties of cheese in bulk, including staples in traditional Mexican cuisine like queso fresco, queso Oaxaca, and queso cojita.
One of the most iconic traditional Mexican cheeses is queso fresco, which is still produced using the same methods that were used centuries ago. This creamy, slightly salty cheese is made from cow’s milk and is especially popular for its bright, moist texture.
Another traditional Mexican cheese that is still made by hand is Oaxaca cheese. This cheese is made by stretching and kneading the cheese curd into long strips, which gives the cheese its characteristic stringy texture. With a texture similar to mozzarella and a mellow, salty flavor, it’s no surprise Oaxaca cheese is so beloved.
The process of making cotija cheese, another traditional Mexican cheese, is a bit more complicated. Cotija cheese is made by aging queso fresco until it is hard and crumbly, which can take anywhere from several days to several months. Cotija is much saltier than other Mexican cheeses and does not melt, making it the perfect topping for tacos, enchiladas, and salads.
