This cheese spread is made using bold Edam cheese, Tête de Maure in Haiti. |

Haitian-style cheese spread

This is the traditional recipe for our cheese spread. Feel free to adjust it to your taste. It is a bit thick, but you can make it thinner, if you wish, by adding more mayo and/or milk. The possibilities are endless. Just make sure not to skip the Tête de Maure (aged Edam) cheese.
