Circassian cheese is found across the North Caucasus, the Levant and other areas with a Circassian diaspora. Circassian cheese is a mild type of cheese that does not melt when baked or fried, and can be crumbled. There is an annual festival for Circassian cheese in Maykop, the capital of the Rapublic of Adyghea, held during the Circassian cultural festival with participants from different regions in the North Caucasus, competing in producing the best types of Circassian cheese.

My grandma used to make this cheese when I was way younger. It is a very interesting flavour without it having a strong flavour. Mostly it is eaten alone with some bread. I suggest everyone to try it if you can get your hands on it. Or even better, try making some. The recipe is pretty easy. 😍
