This is not just cottage cheese, but clabbered cottage cheese. As in cottage cheese with a dangerously high proportion of thick, cultured cream (essentially crème fraîche) mixed right in to the cheese. Pair with ripe, sweet berries and you've got the ideal warm weather snack. The creation from San Francisco-based Cowgirl Creamery skirts the line of guilty pleasure with those creamy, rich curds finishing on a tangy note. It's $10.99 a pound at Eataly and just as good eaten plain with a spoon, straight from the plastic container.
