“ This smoked cheese comes from Mragowo, the northeastern-most part of Poland, home to the Mazurian Lake district. A longtime summer resort area for well-to-do Poles, Mragowo is also noted for its lush farms and robust dairy production. „
Lubelski cheese is a Polish product deriving from the town of Lubelski region near Lublin, a few centuries ago the region was an inland sea considerably shallower than today's Baltic or Black sea's but leaving behind with it a rich sandy type of soil where the cow's graze happily on its grass.
Lubelski tends to be cut from a cylindrical shape, so generally at least one sound is always oval. The cheese is a light white yellow colour, has a soft bouncy texture to it and has similarities in taste to a poor version of Mozarella. It is often said to be dry but I don't see that, it is not crumbly at all.
I like a cheese with a bit of taste but unfortunately this doesn't even come close in the flavour stakes, it is cheese for people who like the idea of cheese but not original tastes. It is often used in a cheesecake type dessert called "Sernik" and tastes better in this case, again like many other Polish cheeses, it's ideal for cutting and melting because of it's texture but lacks in taste.
