Cottage Cheese Anywhere?

Recommended Posts

Every Tops & Foodland stock cottage cheese. Right next to the sour cream. Without sour cream how could we possibly ever make Mexican food? It's Foremost btw.

Great post and thanks because some of us do not live near any of the stores people are mentioning here and need to make it.

I would add, if you need buttermilk for, say, bisquits, you take one cup of whole milk and slowly add it to one tablespoon of vinegar and let it sit for five minutes.......then you have buttermilk.

Glad you find the info useful. Not the most perfect way, but it works in a pinch, especially for cooking.

Regarding buttermilk, I have not had a need to do it that way, but it sounds like it may not have that unique flavor of real buttermilk. Actually, I had an Indian friend who made yogurt in a similar manor using lemon juice and milk.

I would suggest obtaining a live buttermilk culture, as I did here in Thailand at some organic market in BKK... unfortunately I can't remember the name. But I have kept the same culture alive for 7-yrs now and going strong. As long as you have a live culture, you can add whole milk to it as you use it, and it will "regenerate", so to speak. When mine gets down to about a third remaining in the container, I top it off with some whole milk and wait a few weeks (left out for a few hours at first, then in the fridge), at which time I can use it again. Perfect for ranch dressing, buttermilk biscuits, pancakes, blueberry coffeecake, etc., etc.

"full fat' cottage cheese to distinguish it from the 'low fat' variety which is preferred by dieters everywhere...the carton does not say 'full fat', no reference to any type or amount of 'fat' usually implies 'full fat'

I don't mean to unnecessarily resurrect this thread, but I just wanted to add that the Marko supermarket over in Dusit has some big 1.5 kilo tubs of cottage cheese for 450 baht. It's standard, straight-ahead cottage cheese (i.e., not low-fat), industrial sized from Germany.

I gots to get me summa dat!...

a cottage cheese orgy just like a vampire blood fest...good idea fer a movie :)

however, one must investigate: small curd? large curd?...suitable for cottage cheese tacos with home made tortillas and salsa? or to be lashed on to yer favorite lasagne recipe instead of ricotta?

a 1.5 liter tub opens up a world of possibilities...

"My Choice" by Tops have now their own freshly made cheese and they have their own cottage cheese too.

I bought it in Central Food Hall Chidlom and it was very good, fresh and 100% natural.

Cottage is a fresh cheese it must be eaten in a week, if it is imported it means it is not natural hence not a real cottage. i prefer locally made any time except the formost and sunrise dairy withe cream.

But i My-Choice or Tops have their own fresh cheese its great.

They also have Feta and Quark cheese.

Does anyone know where to buy cottage cheese in Bangkok? I used to buy Bulla low-fat in Villa Market / BigC / Tops / Foodland, but it seems now it's not imported anymore. Can't find any other brand except Thai cottage cheese mixed with cream 30%. cc @tutsiwarrior @rotchi @powderpuff

I haven't been able to find any packaged cottage cheese in Thailand, Knudsen's full fat small curd useta be a favorite in California, make cottage cheese tacos with fresh corn tortillas and a dollop of La Victoria salsa Ranchera...

 

the the middle east where I was working it was hit and miss, lots more western food products out there...sometimes you could find it in bulk at the supermarket deli counter and usually quite good, sometimes could find Knudsen's in the dairy cabinet with the packaged yogurt, make cottage cheese tacos with fresh arabic bread, quite nice...westerners go crazy for the stuff...try looking at the deli counter at villa and foodland, usually in big gallon tubs...
