It is easy to fall in love with Venezuelan cheeses. Their soft and fresh texture makes them unique.
Queso Guayanés is one of the most popular cheeses in the country, it´s a fresh soft cheese.
The story blames a German guy who about 50 years ago, visited the lands of Guasipati,
specifically the Hato Macurumo in the south of the country, in the Venezuelan Guyana.
This foreigner commented of the existence of a spun pasta originating in Europe.
He started experimenting with Cow´s raw milk and following his instinct,
tried to find the technique to be able to make it.
He combined the previous day's serum and rennet. He brought this mixture to high temperatures,
and as a result, one of the most exquisite culinary inventions in the area was born:
The Queso Guayanés.
The majority of the production of Guayanese Cheese is crafted the old fashion way,
despite this fact it is quite easy to find anywhere.
There are few industrial cheesemakers who have been encouraged to produce it.
It is usually sold without packaging, in a bag, as if you where buying beans or produce,
and is it´s stored at room temperature, a sign that you have to eat it within few days because it can diminish it´s texture and flavor very quickly. It is a very fresh cheese of semi hard texture.
No crust, made with cow´s raw milk, whole or partially skimmed. It´s flavor is milky and salty.
When it is recently made it is so delicate that it can almost be spread. Its timid but firm taste, is just unforgetable. In today´s Venezuela is easily found in every country restaurant, areperas, bakeries or grocery stores. It is the perfect complement for arepas and cachapas, in any of its versions and preparations.
