Meskhetian Cheese


Taste this savory Georgian style cheese, which is used to fill traditional light and airy Georgian style flatbread. This cheese, of cow or goat milk, is of cultural significance in Georgia’s Samtskhe-Javakheti and Kvemo Kartli regions. It can be found inside of puff pastry which is sold on the open market. This cheese is mixed with a variety of coarsely grated cheeses in the region, much like Emmental cheese, feta, and low-moisture mozzarella. The puff pastry is coated with egg yolk before achieving a golden brown color after 30 minutes of baking.
