ACS CCP® Adam Burstein is our “roving” Cheese of the Day guy at the Facebook Cheese Study Group – discussing cheeses that might not fit into one category or not enough exciting information to write about alone… not that mozzarella is boring… especially when layered with heirloom tomatoes and basil and drizzled with a reduction of Balsamic Vinegar… Here are pertinent notes on Fresh Cheeses that might appear on the ACS CCP® Exam:
Since we have a ton of cheeses to cover before the test, I will be doing a post on all the fresh cheeses.
Fresh cheeses are exactly what they sound like; cheese that is fresh, and has little to no aging. Most fresh cheese is acid set, while some do use the addition of some rennet to help with the coagulation process.
Here is a list of the cheeses you should study for the test. I will not be posting info on each cheese, since there is not a ton you need to know about each one, but it is good to study the basics of each of them just in case.

Elizabeth Nerud already did an amazing post on chevre.
