"Growing up my Mom would always use authentic ingredients in her kitchen. Fresh Mexican cheeses like queso fresco were a staple for us. Only authentic Hispanic cheeses and creams such as Queso Fresco and Crema Mexicana balance the flavors of zesty, robust and spicy Latin dishes. There is no substitute for authentic ingredients," says Food Network Celebrity Chef Aarón Sánchez. "I am ecstatic to partner with Cacique to educate consumers about the fresh, milky flavor of Cacique's Queso Fresco, buttery sweet Crema Mexicana and Cacique's other delicious and authentic products."
