The Village Voice writes in defense of a disappearing food, Cottage Cheese.
No dairy product has sunken lower in the popular estimation than cottage cheese. Can you name a fancy restaurant that has cottage cheese on its menu? Is artisanal cottage cheese available at any bistro or gastropub? Is cottage cheese sold at farmers’ markets, or have you ever seen a speck of it at Smorgasburg, say?
He makes a good point. Cottage cheese — the real stuff mind you, like you can still find in scoop-your-own vats in Russian groceries down in Brighton Beach — is delicious, and deserving of more attention. Before you write it off, try the real thing, or make your own. I actually wouldn’t be surprised to see it become the next hot artisanal dairy product.
