One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
A mild, soft, smooth cheese made from skimmed milk curd.
- ‘It is similar to what is called faisselle elsewhere in France, an unsalted soft curd cheese sold in a double container: the inner container holds the cheese and has holes in it, so that the whey can drain out into the outer container.’
- ‘Salami, curd cheese, eggs, porridge and bread are combined with any supper left over from the evening before.’
- ‘Milk, butter, sour cream, and curd cheese were traditionally highly prized additions to the diet.’
- ‘Their speciality is creamy, full-flavoured brine-washed cow's milk, Criffel and fresh ricotta, a simple curd cheese.’
- ‘The milk of goats and sheep was made into curd cheese and sometimes flavoured with poppy seeds.’
- ‘Those squares of crumbly, white curd cheese served with your Greek Salad, or as part of the mezzo generously supplied with the ouzo in Greece may not have been the real thing in the past.’
- ‘When they were ready, I ate them, warm and wrapped around curd cheese and fresh herbs.’
- ‘A traditional English curd cheese with added organic ingredients such as apricots, roasted seeds or garlic is also being tried as well as a Sheffield version of Brie.’
- ‘Papas chorreadas (literally ‘poured-upon potatoes’) are dishes in which boiled potatoes are smothered by a sauce, e.g. tomato, cheese, and coriander or spring onion and curd cheese.’
- ‘It is a washed curd cheese with a mellow taste that's suitable for any time of the day and is available at the farm gate or through Carlow Farmers' Market.’
- ‘Examples featured apricot chutney and triple curd cheese but, at £7.50, they were beyond our budget.’
