This is an area where one of the most famous Serbian cheeses borns. The Zlatar cheese. This cheese is made in a traditional way, according to a precise procedure, but without any special secrets and technology. Water and pasture are the most important, but for a cheese to be good, barns, cows, milk, kitchen utensils and the facilities in which the cheese is made must be exceptionally clean as well. The use of chemicals for maintaining hygiene is not even considered. The trick is in hand-milking the cows and putting the cheese in small wooden tubs. Plastic packaging is out of the question!
