This week Zarela and Aarón welcome their friend Paula Lambert, founder of The Mozzarella Company, to guide them through the world of Mexican cheese.  Paula's  shares how Mexican ingredients permeated the Texas food scene and sparked her interest in Mexican cheeses decades ago. Together they cover the creation and uses of a number of cheeses, including Requesón, Panela, Cotija, Queso Oaxaca, and more.  

 Plus, they tell the true - Mexican - origins of the Caesar salad, Paula and Zarela reminisce about their time spent with Zarela's mother, and Aaron educates us as to why a combination petting zoo and cheese shop is a bad idea.
