Caş


Caş

"Caş" (IPA2|kaʃ) is a type of cheese made in Romania.

It is made up by adding rennet to the fresh milk and after it coagulates the curd is crushed and then gathered and hanged in a textile material to allow the whey to drain. The cheese thus obtained has a round teardrop shape and is dried and matured until it gets a yellow colour and a slightly sour taste.

The "caş" is subsequently used to make other types of cheese such as the "brânză de burduf" or "caşcaval".

Outside Transylvania, the term "caş" is sometimes used to refer to the "telemea" cheese before, or just after being salted.

The word "caş" is derived from the Latin "caseus" and it is a cognate of the English "cheese".
