Cheese might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Croatia, but I’m beginning to think it should be! We’ve just received our first wheels of Paski Sir, a Croatian sheep’s cheese made on the windy island of Pag.
It’s really quite different than any other cheese that I’ve tasted. Paski Sir has a tropical quality in the nose, like pineapple, that gives way to bright, fruity notes that are complimented by a rich roundness, so characteristic of sheep’s milk cheeses. The cheese also has a distinct and pleasantly salty nature, that keeps its complex flavors well-balanced.
It is great to snack on by itself but would also be great shaved into a winter salad. Come by for a taste!
