Boob-cheese!

Haha! They sell cheese with the shape of a boob here in Spain! And it's not as random as you might think, cause it's called queso tetilla, where tetilla is the diminuitive of teta, which means boob, breast, tit - whatever you prefer to call it! 

I love cheese, but I am a bit picky. I prefer cheese made from cow milk. In Spain they are big on using goat milk and sheep milk in cheese, and preferably a mix of all three. I have not quite gotten used to this, and I still prefer my cow milk cheese. So as queso tetilla is made of just cow milk, I had to give it a try now didn't I? 

It's ok, but quite mild. (It wouldn't hurt it to have a little more personality and character, having the looks isn't everything!)

    1. :) If you ask me you're not missing out, but of course maybe you would love those other ones. I love a good cheese with character and fairly strong taste, but it has to be cows milk!

    1. :) hehe, nothing beats Norvegia though... I miss it! Cheddar or Gouda are the closest I have gotten and they are not at all bad. I probably won't buy boob-cheese again though hehe.

  5. AHAHAHA!! Oh my gosh, how could you NOT buy boob cheese? 'It's not all about looks,' lol. Love it.

    What's the biggest difference between cow and goat cheese? (I'm not a learning cheese lover..)

    1. I have been thinking how to explain this in English!! I think I would say goat cheese is sort of rank?! But I am not sure that's the correct word! It's got a strange but very recognizable taste and smell, and unfortunately I don't like it. People here love it though! Same goes for the sheep cheese, it's sort of the same taste (haha, I am sure some Spanish cheese lover would arrest me for saying that!)
