Oscypek Polish Smoked Cheese

Oscypek Polish Smoked Cheese

A plate of delicious Oscypek smoked cheese about to be eaten at our home here in Lubuskie, western Poland.

Oscypek is Polish smoked cheese produced in the Tatra Mountains in the far south of Poland. It is traditionally made using unpasteurized salted sheep’s milk. To sample this unique cheese you could travel to the Oscypek Festival organized each summer in Zakopane or alternatively visit any good store anywhere in Poland and buy them to enjoy at home. Since we’re a long way from the Polish highlands we usually buy ours at our local Intermarche supermarket! A similar cheese known as Gołka is made using the milk of cows rather than sheep.
