Queijo fresco (literally “fresh cheese”) is a staple in the Portuguese diet. “It’s what pasta is to the Italians,” according to Anne DeMelo, general manager of the family-owned Portuguese Cheese Company in Toronto’s west end.

Eaten throughout the day with breakfast or as a side dish or snack, you can simply drizzle sliced queijo fresco with olive oil and black pepper, you can spread it on crusty bread with a streak of pimenta moida (a salty, Portuguese pickled pepper condiment), or pair it with fresh fruit and honey.

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
