bakers' cheese


Basically cottage cheese with some of the moisture drained off. Bakers' cheese has a texture similar to that of fresh ricotta, but with a slightly tangier flavor. It typically isn't available to consumers—most of it is sold for commercial preparations such as blintzes, cheesecakes, pastries and pies. See also cheese.
