Keeping It Fresh


Photographed by Benjamin Wheatley

Literally translated, queso fresco means “fresh cheese” and is a favorite in the Mexican kitchen. This cow’s milk wheel is often made at home, but you can also find it at your local supermarket chain or Latin grocery store. It’s slightly salty, milky, and extremely versatile—treat it like feta and crumble over salads and roasted veggies, use it like paneer and leave it to soften in a stew, or throw it on the grill alongside spicy peppers to double up on charred flavors.
