Buttery and rich with a slightly scandalous shape and name, this farmhouse cheese from Galicia in northern Spain is at once approachable and exotic. Tetilla is equally at home on a charcuterie and cheese board or in a deluxe grilled cheese.

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.

    "Great melting cheese, creamy and mild, perfect for toast points with preserves or honey then layer on ham on top. "

    "It was my first time ordering Tetilla queso from La Tienda. First thing I noticed is, it was not vacuum packaged individually, instead it came in loose plastic bag and had slight dirt on bottom edge. I had to cut off that part before consuming... Taste was not as good as other Tetillas Queso I had before... Then I checked it's expiration date which was 3/19/2021. I wondered if being so close to expiration made difference in its flavor??"

    Richard - September 2010

    "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."
