When it comes to the Serbian ways of making cheese as delicious as it can be, it is safe to say that we would be in a need of couple of reserved pages in a affineur brochure to describe and promote the magic of our local trademarked kind of cheese.
If you are already familiar with the way that we pronounce things around here, you are wondering why this italianish way of calling our local kind of cheese?
Well, the word that is originally used in the Italian culture was adapted for the needs of a blended cheese that is formed in a shape of a ring and preserved in a dark place. Although it is commonly served as a regular addition to a light summer meal, when it is produced in a self-crafted way it has a certain flavour that makes your sences go mad and seek for a bite more. Most famous kind is made in a part of Serbia known as Pirot – named after a biggest city in that part.
It is also produced on the slopes of the Old Mountain, and for it the kačkavalj was listed as a non-material trademarked heritage of Serbia.
Once you have a go, you will surely get to understand its popularity.
