The database behind this site was the loving creation of Suzy Oakes, who has since passed away. She is greatly missed. You can see her obituary in the Guardian

A cookbook, featuring Suzy's favourite recipies, is available. People who are interested should contact Mun Flint. Currently, the cost is £12.50 plus postage and packing. All proceeds go to the Suzy Oakes Trust for Mill Road.

Queso Oaxaca

Language: Spanish

Description: A ball, loaf or plait of fresh cheese made with cow's milk, similar to Provolone. It has a white, supple, elastic paste. It may be found weighing anything from 225 g - 5 kg (8 oz - 11 lb) and is particularly good for cooking as it has good melting properties. The markets around Oaxaca are full of these string cheeses, woven into balls and wrapped in plastic.
