Semi-soft cheese falls between soft and hard cheeses in terms of texture and flavor. It has a semi-firm, pliable texture that is often slightly elastic, and a mild to tangy flavor that can range from nutty to buttery and that appeals to many palates!
The production process for semi-soft cheese involves curdling the milk with rennet and then pressing the curds to remove any excess moisture. The cheese is then allowed to mature for several weeks, which helps to develop its unique flavor and texture. Semi-soft cheeses are typically made using cow's, sheep's, or goat's milk and can be made with a variety of production methods, including washed rind, bloomy rind, or pressed.
