Cottage Cheese (Australian)

Cottage Cheese, sometimes known as Baker’s Cheese, is of European origin but is a popular ingredient in Australian cuisine. A type of fresh, unripened cheese, it is mostly made from cow’s milk. Sweet and mild in flavor, Cottage cheese with its high moisture content is a mass of soft, lumpy pea-sized curds.  Since it is high in protein and low on fat, it is considered a healthy cheese by many. This soft, white cheese with a firm and grainy consistency is sold in markets as a paste or block.

Cottage cheese tastes great with sweet, savory dishes such as lasagna and cheesecake. The cheese should be used preferably within a week of purchase due to its short shelf life.
