Our story all started in a tiny kitchen of a humble home in Nueva Ecija. Mama Jessie learned how to make kesong puti (or white cheese) from her grandmother using fresh carabao’s milk. The recipe was passed on from one generation to another, and eventually to Mama Jessie’s daughter, Marivic, who initially made the special cheese for just family and friends. Eventually, through word of mouth, more and more people began regularly ordering. This inspired Marivic to turn the hobby into a business in 2000. Marivic’s daughter then helped give her small business a name: Mama Jessie’s Kesong Puti!
The recipe has stayed in the family for decades. Slowly, it made it into the shelves of well-known deli stores and bazaars, and dishes of esteemed restaurants all over the Philippines. To this day, Marivic continues to run the operations of her backyard business with the help of her family.
