What to buy here: Bulgarian white cheese.

Popular in Bulgaria as “white brine sirene “cheese” it is very often confused by the foregners with the Greek feta. The truth is that the Bulgarian cheese is unbeatable by its taste and incomparable with any other type of cheeses. The taste of the cheese is given by the unique bacteria called “Bacillus Bulgaricus” dicovered in 1905 in Bulgaria and named after the name of the country, which is also the reason for its slightly acid taste. Thanks to the same bacteria the Bulgarian yougurt is world known for its wholesome effect on the health.

The cheese can be made of goat milk, cow’s milk or sheep milk. For best taste it has to be put in storage for 60 days. The cheese is one of the must ingredients of the most popular Bulgarian salad called “Shopska” as well as the famous stuffed pepper with cheese. If you drink red wine it is an indispensible product on the table dusted with finely ground red pepper and olive oil. It is also used in the preparation of the most common breakfast of the Bulgarians – salty pastry stuffed with wite cheese « banitsa ».

The white cheese is one of the products that remind the communist era in Bulgaria and today the people still remember the real taste of the home made white brine cheese produced with home made milk and yeast and strained in the dining room of the house. From 9$ for a kilogram.
