Peluso Cheese

Started by Giovanni Peluso in 1919 in Los Banos, California, Peluso Cheese continues to hand-make their signature Teleme – an original style that gets creamier with time, its rind dusted with rice flour – as well as fresh Mexican and Central American cheeses.

Peluso’s cheeses include Tomales Bay Teleme Cheese, Mexican cheeses: Cotija, Queso Fresco, Panela, Doble Crema, Requeson, and Central American cheeses: Queso Freir and Chontaleño.

Their Teleme cheese, loved by so many, is only available by calling to request shipment. Soon, their website will allow online ordering.
