Ah, requeson—the Mexican ricotta-style cheese. It's a revelation to see how easy it is to make it from scratch! In what our resident Latin American cooking instructor, Annelies Zijderveld is calling a progressive feast, we will make requeson to mix into tempting albondigas (meatballs) to cook in a soul-satisfying Sopa de Albondigas en Verano that celebrates the verdant abundance of spring produce with a quick-simmered chile broth.

Annelies Zijderveld believes cooking should be fun and flavorful, (and still can’t quite get over the amazing abundance of fresh produce and ingredients available to us in the Bay area). With a master’s in intercultural studies and a Mexican-Bolivian-Dutch heritage, she’s keen on finding the points of intersection around the table. Her food writing has recently appeared in Edible East Bay, The Kitchn, and San Francisco Classical Voice. Her online cooking journal, EatMoreMeatless.net explores creative and doable ways for all trying to eat more vegetables. Find her online at Instagram @anneliesz.
