Tetilla is a D.O.P designated cheese, made in the lush, green area in Galicia in the northwest of Spain. It’s a soft, creamy cheese and the most characteristic cheese from Spain, recognized by its pear shaped cone and smooth, fine, yellow straw-colored rind. It’s the perfect cheese for cooking as it melts smoothly and easily.
