Tetilla is a favorite of our family: a rich, creamy dairy cheese from the lush countryside of Galicia. This soft, buttery cheese is wonderful with fresh bread, or melted on canapes.

Many think of Spanish cheeses as a sharp Manchego or other aged cheese from the sun baked interior of Spain. In fact Spain is a diverse land, with hundreds of microclimates and over 400 types of cheese. Tetilla is from Galicia, which is filled with rolling green hills punctuated with patches of granite, and many contented cows.

For centuries the milk from these cows has produced beautiful hand-formed cheeses, in the country surrounding the medieval walled city of Lugo. You can see rows of them in the market any day of the week – they are the favorite cheese of the residents in the area.

And what a versatile cheese it is! Sometimes you might like to sit down for a moment with a fresh apple and slices of Tetilla. Another time you might want to make glorious grilled cheeses on crusty bread – or make a tempting cream sauce for asparagus or cauliflower. Actually, any time you think of using a mild cheddar or Gouda, try a rich creamy Tetilla instead.


Pasteurized cow's milk, lactic ferments, animal rennet, salt and calcium chloride.

"Mild, delicious cheese. Even the grandchildren children ask for this often. A fine cheese to introduce them to good cheese since most believe Kraft dinner is the meal of choice. Good with fruit and a nice bread or crackers for late afternoon snacks."

"A mild, soft cheese that pairs well with wine, chorizo, and other nibbles on a cheese plate or snack platter. The size is a little large, compared to the usual wedge I buy at the cheese counter at the market, but it will go quickly I'm sure."

"You can forget about Brie - this is far superior as a semi-soft cheese with wonderful creamy texture and slightly sweet flavour - at a great value price"

"We had this amazing cheese as a tapa in Madrid. It is mellow and delicious - holds together better than brie but doesn't have the sharpness of a port salut - there really isn't anything like it in the states. As a treat for my husband, who just couldn't stop talking about it, I ordered it through La Tienda. He is delighted - it arrived quickly in a cold-shipment box, in great condition. We are delighted to have found La Tienda, so we can revisit the authentic tastes of Spain."
