First topic message reminder :

Bulgaria Introduces Standard for 'Real' Cheese

The Bulgarian state standard for white cheese has entered into force on Friday, the Bulgarian Institute for Standardization has announced.

The standard was developed by a group of experts. It will repeal the previous three standards for sheep, cow and mixed cheese.

It will apply to Bulgarian white cheese made from cow, sheep, buffalo, goal or mixed milk. There will be an addition of selected strain of microorganisms, isolated in Bulgaria, through curdling with rennet, which has received a required treatment and has undergone a process of maturation and is ready for consumption.

The standard's fundamental principles with regards to the components, quality indicators and characteristics, and technology will reflect the best practices of the cheese production.

Unlike the previous standards, the newly implemented one will include two new assortments, which are available on the Bulgarian market and are well-accepted abroad – buffalo white cheese and goat white cheese.

Like the other state standards for yogurt and meat, the Bulgarian state standard for cheese will also not be mandatory, but rather recommendable.

Every cheese producer will be able to buy the standard from the Bulgarian Institute for Standardization for the price of BGN 39,60.

Bulgaria Advertises Cheese, Yellow Cheese in Spain, Germany

Bulgaria has launched an advertising campaign in Spain and Germany for its feta cheese and yellow cheese known as kashkaval.

The advertising campaign aims at making the citizens of the two countries acquainted with the Bulgarian products and convincing them to include the cheese and kashkaval in their daily meals.

In April 2010, the European Commission approved the project of the Bulgarian Association of Milk Producers and provided 50% for its financing, which is valued at BGN 6.3 M. Other 30% have come from the Bulgarian state budget and 20% from the private business.

The advertisement campaign, prepared entirely by Bulgarian companies, includes TV commercials, print media advertisement and articles and presentations at fairs and exhibitions over the course of 3 years.

Consortium's of businesses in the food manufacturing industry can apply each year for EC advertisement financing as long as they present a local product and not a particular brand. The approval of the Bulgarian cheese is a first for the country.

The German newspaper Weltexpress has written that the production of Bulgarian cheese started 5000 years ago by the Thracians. At present, it could be bought from Turkish stores in Germany or on-line.

The newspaper also advices people to mix the Bulgarian cheese with Bulgarian wine.

You are right pixi but as you may know Bulgarian cheese just doesn't really have any flavour so I think it will be an uphill struggle.

Has anyone ever tried making their own cheese? I know that in some the recipes I've see it seems easy but haven't never tried it I just wondered how difficult it actually is

we have looked into it - we sooooo miss proper cheddar (not willing to pay 6Leva for 200g of the mild stuff)

Have got a book on cheese making, got the rennet - but the process is quite tedious, lots of messing around.... and then 9 litres of milk produces less than 1kg of cheddar - then you have to wait at least 3 months for it to mature in a cool room, (hoping it is going to taste right) ...... I might try it one day, when I have nothing more exciting to do!!!! :Smile8:

We do make our own sausages though ....

Bulgarian unique cheeses are presented to the World Exposition Slow Food "
Cheese"


For the third consecutive Bulgarian unique cheeses will attend the World Exposition of Slow Food "
Cheese"
from 16 to 19 September this year. Will be presented by Karakachan dairy sheep of the presidium of Slow Food in Vlahi, South Pirin, and has obtained international fame 'Green cheese' from the village of Cherni Vit. Besides that will delight their fans from different countries, 'Green cheese' will be the only Bulgarian product that will represent our country in so-called 'Great Hall of cheese' together in a mature goat's cheese cellar of Jämtland, Sweden and yogurt with ashes rest of Kenya, said the Slow Food Bulgaria.

The forum is dedicated to "
milk in all its forms."
It creates an international network of manufacturers of cheese in the traditional way, which occur in Bra every two years to present their products to meet with co-producer (consumer) to discuss the challenges in trade and marketing and share options solutions for their old and new problems.

Slow Food in Bulgaria working on search and storage of unique Bulgarian foods and making them sustainable livelihoods of local communities in rural areas in the country, explained the company.

In these foods is preserved the Bulgarian spirit, Bulgarian taste and ingenuity of the Bulgarian farmers. Unfortunately in our country has no national policy to search and protect the unique Bulgarian foods that can provide livelihoods of local people. Just for comparison, Italy has over 4000 unique food production that is regulated and supported by the state, said Desislava Dimitrova International Consul of Slow Food Southeast Europe and Balkans.

About 200 producers will deploy their stalls on the streets and squares of Bra and offer their products for tasting and sale. In the 'Great Hall of the cheeses' visitors can enjoy 150 species of cheeses from around the world to choose from 700 different wines. This year the focus of "
Cheese"
2011 France, a country which for years has maintained its cheese from raw milk has supported manufacturers and their regional differences is preserved.

Bulgarian Cheese Made of German Milk Concentrate

Bulgarian cheese is made of German milk, warned Gospodin Gospodinov, Chair of the Branch Union of Stock-breeders in Bulgaria.

In a Thursday interview for Standard daily, he said that Bulgarian dairy plants had no other option for coping with the shortage of quality raw material but to rely on import, most often from Germany and Hungary.

Gospodinov explained that the cost of German milk concentrate with a 0.1% fat content was as low as BGN 0.50 per liter, while the price of Bulgarian cow milk varied between BGN 0.72-0.75.

What is more, Gospodinov noted, it was predominantly major dairy processors who had access to high-quality raw material, leaving smaller companies no other option but to import.

He stated that the huge scarcity was caused by the persistently dwindling number of animals.

The Chair of the Stock-breeders Union said that the entire dairy processing industry had experienced a several-fold decrease over the past 20 years, with the most tangible decline in the number of sheep, which dropped from a total of 10.5 million to 1.3 million.

Velichko Vasilev, owner of a dairy plant near Dobrich, claimed that the shrunken market had forced dairy products manufacturers to sell below market value.

"
Quality cheese really costs BGN 8-10 but we sell it for BGN 6-7,"
he said.

Several days ago, Food Safety Agency inspectors uncovered a new fraud scheme deployed by cheese traders which involved buying one type of cheese, unpackaging it and selling it under different brand names and at different prices.

In the meantime, news arrived from Brussels that the Official Journal of the European Union (OJ) had published a decision for extending the deadline for ensuring compliance with European regulations concerning the dairy sector.

Under the decision, Bulgaria will have to bring its dairy products in line with European standards by December 31, 2013.

Nothing like eating a nice piece of English Cheddar, the cheese here in Turkey is like eating white blotting paper and just as distasteful!!

The first question that springs to mind is - what about the EU subsidies for farming and agriculture which would have helped the livestock numbers rather than depleting it? Maybe the forms were too difficult to fill in or maybe the money went elsewhere. C'est la Vie in Bulgaria.
Itchyfeet I am afraid that Bulgarian cheese isn't much better except for the white cheese (cyrene) which is great.

Most of the cyrenes are good although some are a bit salty. However, I have yet to find a good Kashkaval (yellow cheese). Even the expensive ones seem to have no taste unless you like VERY mild cheese. Its the one thing I don't like about food here and cheese seems very expensive for what it is.
i was told if you soak it overnight it looses the salt preserving taste

This is true it does remove the salt but it also removes some of the taste! so I would rather have the full flavour but each to his own I say..
