Albanian Cheeses

Goat,Sheep & Kackavall Cheese

One of the most popular hard cheeses in Balkan countries, dating back to the 11th and 12th centuries, is Kackavall, which was first brought to Bulgaria by nomadic tribes from the East. Nowadays, it is produced in an area stretching from the former southern USSR and Turkey, through Albania, Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Serbia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Hungary to Italy, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt and Morocco.
Although there are many varieties of Kackavall due to certain differences in some operations in their, there are three essentially distinct technological processes for Kackavall production today: Balkan (Albania, Greece, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia etc), Russia, which is very similar to the first, and Italian. Kackavall is manufactured from cows, sheep, goat or mixed milk, raw or pasteurize.
