Baracskai is a unique hard cheese with striking looks and a fascinating backstory. According to legend, the cheesemaker who created Baracskai in the 16th century lacked milk after the evening's milking for making a full-size cheese. Therefore, he sealed the top with a layer of ash, then placed the fresh cheese made in the morning over the top of it and aged it in one piece. This artisan cow's cheese is aged for a minimum of four months, and it has a deliciously creamy and mellow flavour.
Baracskai is an excellent addition to cheese boards, and you can take it to new gastronomic heights by serving it with an indulgent wine jelly.
