The World in Cheeses
Jben is a traditional goat cheese from Chefchaouen, Morocco. It’s a fresh cheese that’s made by first preparing the curds, then adding salt to preserve them, before forming it into shapes. Jben is often eaten for breakfast, drizzled with olive oil, and served with msemen, which is a light, flat pancake eaten frequently throughout Morocco.
Orgu peyniri is a Turkish cow milk cheese well-known for its distinctive braided shape. It’s often served for breakfast. The cheese looks similar to mozzarella di bufala, because of its bright white color and stretchy shape, but is actually quite a lot harder and saltier.
