Cheese Paste

In Trinidad, Cheese Paste is a local cheese spread used for sandwiches or alongside some crackers as a snack. The recipe begins with cheese, New Zealand Cheddar Cheese to be exact which is the most common cheese found in Trinidad. It is the combination of this salty cheese mixed together with local seasonings and ingredients we all have in our kitchens that is used to make this spreadable delight. It is one of those iconic homemade dishes that can create a devotion to a particular friend or family member, usually an Aunty, who makes THE BEST cheese paste. However, regardless of the debate over who makes the best cheese paste, we can all agree it is a dish that once you start eating you cannot stop until it is done. Enjoy our recipe of Trinidad Cheese Paste and start your own fan base at your next social gathering.
