Once known as the poor man’s cheese, this particularly healthy and light delicacy is produced seasonally in substantially lower quantities than cheese.

Precious whey is used in making skuta, this delicious curd cheese – soft, creamy white cheese so delicate that it can be spread on bread and easily combined in numerous ways due to its mild taste. A perfect companion to various salty and sweet dishes, from appetisers to desserts, as it keeps its creamy texture when heat-treated.

Its texture is crisp and supple as it is low in fat. Its full-fat cow’s milk or cream aroma is very pleasant.
