Niedźwiednik (Bear Cheese)
It is the oldest and the feistiest among our cheeses. For real connoisseurs. After six months of ripening, it is an ideal companion for red wine, especially one that has spent an equal amount of time (or more) maturing in a cask. Addition of savoury and bear’s garlic makes the cheese’s taste deeper and herbal, and lets it slowly develop on your palate.
According to our tradition some of our best cheeses bear names that are related both to some specific features of a given cheese and to names of selected summits in the Karkonosze mountains. ‘Niedzwiednik’ (‘Bear Cheese’) does exactly that: it refers to one of the two herbal ingredients of the cheese (i.e. bear’s garlic) and to a mountain located between Przesieka and Karpacz, some 15 kms from our farm.
