Trapist is a semi-hard fat cheese made of cow's milk, with a slightly sour flavour and a pleasant, moderately pronounced smell.
Rind has the colour of straw, it is elastic and smooth, while
the body is covered with few evenly distributed holes. This supreme
cheese is an ideal component of any cheese platter; it is
recommended to be paired with dried fruits, grapes, a glass of
white wine or to be enjoyed alone with a piece of bread.
Trapist is available in 500 g and 2 kg packages.
