Cottage Cheese, sometimes known as Baker’s Cheese, is of European origin but is a popular ingredient in Australian cuisine. Fresh, unripened cheese is mostly made from cow’s milk. Sweet and mild in flavour, Cottage cheese with its high moisture content, is a mass of soft, lumpy pea-sized curds.  Since it is high in protein and low in 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, savoury dishes such as lasagna and cheesecake. The cheese should be consumed within a week of purchase due to its short shelf life.
