Kashkaval ! Other main variety is white cheese.

if you go to one of the large supermarkets, eg BILLA, you will get a wider rang, incluidng imported cherese.

Where are you ?

VJay: I only wish that was true. Good chedder is not available in BG. Not in Billa, not in Metro, not anywhere - that's why the cornishmaids have such a lot of crap in the fridge.

Part of the price that you pay to live in BG - no decent chedder cheese. Lots of 'blue' cheese if you want it.

There's a kind of kashkaval called Paladin (Паладин), which I think is much better than the normal kind, if you can find it. I used to buy it when I lived in Sofia, but haven't seen it here in VT. It's got a texture and flavour more like cheddar than the usual kashkaval, but of course youcan't beat the real thing.

My father in law sent me a package containing English cheese about 12 months ago, but it hasn't arrived yet. Has anybody seen/smelt it?

That is useful to know but it doesn't seem very popular with the locals. I will e-mail my friend in BG and see if is obtainable in Elhovo.
Thanks

cheese & customs

Postby satellitemark » Sat Mar 11, 2006 8:06 am

hi

i had to resort to bring cheese with me from the uk, its not to bad away from peak season but it gets a bit sweaty in the middle of summer ! on one occasion , i was stopped in berlin by customs & asked why i was carrying cheese in my luggage ! they were ok about it as it was unopened & vac packed but i think if it had been in cling film they would of taken it off of me.

regards

mark

Cheese

Postby Pelican » Sat Mar 11, 2006 8:42 am

We haven't as yet found real Cheddar, there's a variety of Cheese available in some supermarkets 'Chedur' but it's not a patch on the genuine article.

Kashkaval comes in all sorts of guises and the lighter whiter variants seem a bit more in tune with our British palate.

I was sick to the back teeth with 'Sirene' after a month but persevered and have found some very tasty, milder and slightly less salty kinds are available.

We had a week back in the UK last month and I must have chomped my way through at least a pound of Mature Cheddar.

Gouda and Emmental are in most big Supermarkets and are great for Cheese on Toast (some Kaskaval is good for this too).
