GEORGIAN SULGUNI CHEESE
Sulguni (Georgian: სულგუნი) is a cheese from the Samegrelo region of Georgia. It has a sour, moderately salty flavor and an elastic consistency.
Sulguni is made using only natural ingredients: normalized cow milk clotted by rennet with pure cultures of lactic bacteria. It is a “quick cheese” maturing in just one or two days.
A typical sulguni cheese is disc shaped, 2.5 to 3.5 centimeters thick and up to 1.5 kilograms in weight.
Smoked Sulguni cheese has a firm texture and an amazing taste.
