Washed Rind Teleme


Please select an option

A more robust take on an old favorite, with a vibrant rind and pungent aroma this cheese is sure to please a pronounced palate! Washed Rind Teleme is much stronger and stinkier than the original Teleme, resembling an Italian Taleggio cheese. After several weeks, of age, Teleme grows creamier and runny with more complex flavor, eventually reaching nearly liquid state that delights Teleme lovers! It is enjoyed both as a table cheese and as an ingredient cheese by California chefs, who use it as a signature cheese in such dishes as risottos and pizzas.

The Peluso family's Teleme is very different from its namesake, which is a brined, Feta-like cheese found in Greece and nearby countries. They call their Teleme "Rice Flour Teleme" because the naturally aged cheese has a thin dusting of rice flour on the surface to prevent mold. Peluso also changed the cheese to make it softer and creamier.
