I don't like English cottage cheese because the curds are hard, the consistency is either dry or creamy depending on whether it is fat-free or full fat (and good cottage cheese is neither dry nor overly creamy and british creamy just means rich and heavy on the mouth), and the flavour. is not tradionally cottage cheesey!
I grew up in Canada eating cottage cheese and in my experience, Canadian cottage cheese is KING. The curds are soft yet flavourful, and the liquid portion is light yet creamy. I moved to London over 6 years ago, and despite favouring the general cheese scene here 100 fold over canada, I never understood their shit awful cottage cheese.
I've tried every cottage cheese in every major supermarket in London, and have been disappointed every time -- until hitting the kosher emporium Yarden. It's made by a company called Strauss which is one of the largest cottage cheese producers in Israel. The label is in Hebrew, but I think it is the only Israeli brand of cottage cheese there (and in London) so just buy the one in the funny script.
If you make it there to enjoy the cottage cheese I recommend the 3% over the 5%. They're both great, but the 3% has a more pronounced cheese flaovour and has a great texture despite the low-ish fat content. Fuck I dunno I just polished off 1 of each type and I am floating in the sky thinking about amazing cottage cheese.
